Our Grant Rounds

Test tubes

Alzheimer's Society is stepping up the fight against dementia through greater investment in research. We have a year-on-year commitment to increase research spend, and we are aiming to spend at least £10 million a year on research by 2017.

What we fund

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.
