Scottish Seedcorn Fund for Neurological Research

Published on: 12/04/2019

The Scottish Seedcorn Fund for Neurological Research is open for applications.

Deadline for completed applications is 12pm 20th May 2019.

The Chief Scientist Office and the RS Macdonald Charitable Trust have provided funds for ‘seedcorn grants’, administered by the University of St Andrews, to enable researchers to test innovative ideas related to neurodegenerative or neurodevelopmental conditions. 

They are keen to award funding across three general themes: fundamental science; diagnosis; and practice based research and caring sciences. They hope to enable researchers to develop ideas that may otherwise be difficult to fund and grants are expected to be up to £15,000. The fund welcomes opportunities to be part of a co-funded arrangement.

More details and an application form can be found on the Chief Scientist Office website
