Grant Description
Grants and fellowships to USA, Canada, and International researchers at nonprofit organizations and institutions for projects that explore and increase the understanding of Alzheimer's disease. Applicants should submit a letter of intent prior to applying. Funding is intended to accelerate the understanding of the biological mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias as well as innovative approaches to better diagnose, prevent or delay the progress of the disease.

The ADR program offers two types of awards:

  • Standard Awards: The standard award provides significant funding for researchers who have already generated some amount of preliminary data, but are often required to demonstrate additional, significant progress before they can apply to governmental or industrial funding agencies.
  • Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards: Postdoctoral fellowship awards are intended for young researchers in their final stages of mentored training. These awards fund projects in an established laboratory that will serve as the basis for the applicant's own independent research career.
