Applications call for McDonald Fellowships 2020
The McDonald Fellowships enables young researchers from low- and middle-income countries to work in a research institution outside of their own country. Following the award, we expect applicants will be able to use the newly developed expertise and networks, continuing to undertake MS research and/or patient care in low- and middle-income countries.
Moreover, one fellowship is in partnership with ECTRIMS and is known as the MSIF-ECTRIMS McDonald Fellowship. Furthermore, another fellowship is in partnership with MSIF’s member, ARSEP, The Fondation pour l’Aide à la Recherche Sur la Sclérose En Plaques. This is the MSIF-ARSEP McDonald Fellowship.
The fellowship consists of a two-year grant, around £30,000 GBP per year; to cover travel and living costs, and also an additional contribution of £2,000 GBP per year to the host institution. However, the fellowship providers expect that part of the second-year grant to the host institution will be to cover the candidate’s expenses to attend the annual congress of ECTRIMS, the European Committee for Treatment and Research in MS.
Furthermore, candidates must also be in one of the following situations:
