The MSIF Du Pré Grant enables multiple sclerosis researchers and clinicians from low- and middle-income countries to make short visits (up to six months) to established MS research centers, outside of their own country.

For 2022 we are open to applications for virtual or local projects to overcome the travel restrictions imposed by COVID-19.

  2. applicants will have access to the newly developed expertise and networks
  3. Each grant is up to a maximum of £6,000 GBP, to cover the cost of travel and living expenses or to top up an existing grant to extend a visit.
