In the 2016 funding round, $3.75 million was awarded by MNDRIA to 32 new MND research grants commencing in 2017. Awards to successful applicants were determined by the MND Research Committee
Applications for the Susie Harris Travel Fellowship 2017 and an MNDRIA PhD Top-up Grant closed on 27 January 2017.
MNDRIA research grants are listed on the Australian Competitive Grants Register. This enables universities receiving grants from MNDRIA to receive additional funds from the Australian Government Research Block Grants which contribute to infrastructure costs associated with the funded research projects. All MNDRIA research grants (except travel grants and student scholarships) are eligible.
Details of grants for 2018 will be made available later this year. Applications will close on Friday 25 August 2017. Grants will include a postdoctoral fellowship, the Betty Laidlaw MND Research Prize, an NHMRC/MNDRIA co-funded PhD Scholarship, grants-in-aid, and a PhD Top-up Grant.
