The PhD Fellowships from the MS Society support UK-based PhD students working on multiple sclerosis research. Applications are open to the mentor and NOT the PhD student directly. The mentor is responsible for identifying a suitable student for the Fellowship. Applicants must be based at a UK university or NHS institution (fixed-term or tenure) and be the Principal Investigator of the project. The society provides around £100,000 to fund PhD stipends in accordance with MRC guidelines, up to £7,000 per year towards tuition fees and a maximum of £15,000 per year in running costs. The society also funds up to £3,000 in conference costs. Funding is provided over 36 months.
Lay summary development deadline are due on April 17, 2023 and invited full applications are due on June 27, 2023.
