Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships of $10,000 to USA doctoral candidates or postdoctoral researchers early in their careers for research on degenerative neurological diseases. Funding is intended for costs related to attendance at conferences, technology, and other resources that will assist in tauopathy research.

Tau fellows will be evaluated based on their leadership, mentorship, community engagement and civic impact outside of the laboratory. Early-career leaders in research will know their value is beyond just the bench, that their skills and expertise can make an impact on their community, and inspire future scientists. Doctoral and postdoctoral fellows will also be considered based on their research experience with a special emphasis placed on their contribution to the understanding of PSP and Tauopathy-related diseases. Combined, the Foundation is looking for leaders in scientific discovery, who also have a demonstrated commitment to community engagement and growth of the next generation of leaders in research and beyond.
