Deadlines for grant rounds

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.

To apply

Visit our applications page to learn about our funding process and how you can submit a high quality research application.

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.

Lay summary training workshop for biomedical researchers 

We are organising a workshop that aims to help both researchers and members of the Research Network (our Patient and Public Involvement group) to be more confident in writing and reviewing lay summaries submitted as part of our Biomedical research stream. 

The workshop is on July 3 in our central office in Crutched Friars in London. It is open to any researcher who is planning on submitting an application to our biomedical stream within the next 18 months. The attendees will be a mixture of researchers and Research Network members. Lay summaries are an essential part of the application process at Alzheimer’s Society and other funders and this presents an excellent opportunity for discussion and to understand more about what makes a  good lay summary. 

We are currently open to expressions of interest for the workshop. If you would be interested in coming to this workshop please email Please do also feel free to pass this information on to any colleagues for whom this is relevant.
