Fellowships to USA, Canada, and International early-career postdoctoral scientists and neurologists to conduct research studies related to Parkinson's disease (PD). Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent prior to submitting a full application. The fellowships are intended to encourage young clinicians and scientists to devote their talents to the study of PD.

The Parkinson's Foundation offers two Postdoctoral Fellowships:

  • Postdoctoral Fellowships for Basic Scientists Program: The Postdoctoral Fellowships for Basic Scientists are two-year fellowships for young scientists, fresh from their Ph.D. training, to study at major research institutions. The Parkinson’s Foundation seeks research proposals from promising early-career scientists that will directly impact the understanding of Parkinson’s disease or its treatment.
  • Postdoctoral Fellowships for Clinical Neurologists Program: For young clinicians who have completed their neurology residency and are seeking clinical research experience, the Parkinson's Foundation offers the Postdoctoral Fellowships for Clinical Neurologists.

Applications from groups that have been historically underrepresented or excluded in the scientific workforce, including but not limited to racial and ethnic groups, sexual orientation and gender identities, individuals with mental/physical disabilities, and those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, are especially encouraged.

Estimated Size of Grant:

The Postdoctoral Fellowships for Basic Scientists program offers grants of $124,000 over two years. This consists of $57,000 annually (to be used as salary) as well as a $5,000 annual research allowance to be used at the Fellow's discretion, with sponsor/mentor approval, to pay for items such as books, training courses, travel costs (up to $2,000) or a computer. The Foundation may approve $3,000 of the research allowance to defray the health insurance costs paid by the Fellow, with a written request.

The Postdoctoral Fellowships for Clinical Neurologists grants are in the amount of $140,000. This award includes salary support of $65,000 per year. The Fellow, with the approval of the mentor, may use an additional research allowance of $5,000 per year to pay for such items as books, training courses, travel costs (up to $2,000) or a computer. There is no provision for the deduction of postdoctoral taxes, institutional overhead or fees. However, if the Fellow sends a written request, up to $3,000 of the research allowance may be approved to defray the cost of health insurance paid by the Fellow.

Two-year fellowships.

First-year funding typically begins on July 1 and ends June 30 the following year.
