Alzheimer's Society is open to funding research across all areas of dementia that is considered the highest quality and of greatest relevance to people affected by dementia. The research programme is organised into two streams, biomedical research and care, services and public health research that cover the full scope of dementia research. We are committed to increasing our investment in care research that will help people living with dementia today.

Application webinar 

We are hosting a webinar that will guide potential applicants through our applications process. The webinar will last  for 1 hour and it will cover the grants that we offer, their upcoming deadlines and tips for developing and submitting an application. Those participating in the webinar will be able to ask questions about our grants programme and the application process. We will be running this webinar on multiple dates:

-    Wednesday 15th February 2017  at  12.30pm
-    Friday 3rd March 2017  at  12.30pm

In order to participate, you will need to be a researcher based at a UK research institution or NHS trust but do not need to be funded by Alzheimer's Society. You will also need to have access to a phone and a computer.

If you are interested in participating in this webinar, please email indicating the date you would like to attend.

Resubmission policy

Applicants may resubmit a revised application, for the same project, after rejection by the Grants Advisory Board, but only once. A resubmitted application can only be submitted after at least 12 months have passed since the original application was made. In other words, not to subsequent closing deadlines which are 6 months apart.

The Grants Advisory Board will expect the project to be sufficiently revised to take into account any reviewer feedback and further developments in the research field.
