Applicants should demonstrate potential to be an independent researcher. Fellowships are open to researchers from all disciplines, health and care professions, in line with Alzheimer's Society's vision to increase capacity with depth and breadth across all disciplines involved in dementia research.
  • Research fellowships: For post-doctoral or other successful researchers who wish to build on a number of successful years of dementia research, and who demonstrate the ambition and potential to be a leader in their research field at the end of the award.
  • PhD studentships: Funding of up to £85,000 is provided for up to three years (up to five years part time) and includes a stipend (£15,000-£16,000 per year), university PhD fees at EU rates, consumables & equipment, and conference dissemination support.
