Alzheimer's Society Fellows will be supported in their career development by a number of additional initiatives being developed and rolled out as part of the Dementia Research Leaders programme.

Junior Fellowships

Junior Fellowships are for post-doctoral researchers who have shown exceptional promise at the start of their research career. Applicants should demonstrate potential to be an independent researcher.

Applicants may apply for direct research costs up to £225,000 to support their research.

Senior Fellowships

A Senior Fellowship is 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 an independent investigator at the end of the award. 

Applicants will have an established track record in an area of dementia or related neurodegenerative research as evidenced by publications, collaborations or other grant funding (either as a co-applicant or principal applicant).

Applicants may apply for direct research costs up to £400,000 to support their research.

PhD Studentship 

The objective of Alzheimer's Society PhD Studentship grants is to provide funding for new PhD studentships in the areas of cause, cure, care or prevention of all types of dementia.

Funding of up to £85,000 is provided for up to three years and includes a stipend (£15,000-£16,000 per year), university PhD fees at EU rates, consumables & equipment, and conference dissemination support. All costs must be justified. They have added a London weighting uplift to our PhD studentships of £2,000/annum from October 2015, raising the award total to £91k for London based applications.
