Our funding schemes

Our research programme provides funding for all career-levels: undergraduate bursaries, PhD studentships, fellowships, and project grants for established researchers.

Applications can be made for research projects that are relevant to people affected by dementia and that fit within our funding remit, which is organised into two streams: Biomedical research and Care, services and public health research.

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