Description
The McDonald Fellowship enables young researchers from emerging countries to work in a research institution outside of their own country. Following the award, they expect applicants will be able to use the newly developed expertise and networks, continuing to undertake MS research and/or patient care in emerging countries.

The fellowship consists of a two-year grant, around 30,000 GBP per year, to cover travel and living costs, and an additional contribution of 2,000 GBP per year to the host institution. They expect that part of the second-year grant to the host institution will be used to cover the candidate’s expenses to attend the annual congress of ECTRIMS, the European Committee for Treatment and Research in MS.

One fellowship is awarded in partnership with ECTRIMS and is known as the MSIF-ECTRIMS McDonald Fellowship.

Another fellowship is awarded in partnership with MSIF’s member, ARSEP, The Foundation pour l’Aide à la Recherche sur la Sclérose En Plaques. This is known as the MSIF-ARSEP McDonald Fellowship.
