Alzheimer Society Research Program

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on June 24, 2024 in Research Funding

The Proof of Concept Grant provides $100,000 over up to 3 years to support investigators with innovative, high-risk, high-yield hypotheses about dementia.

The Alzheimer Society Research Program will pre-screen applications for the Proof of Concept Grant through a Letter of Intent (LOI) process. Successful LOI applicants will then be asked to submit a full application for peer review later in the summer.

Researchers with big, bold, challenging new ideas relevant to Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are encouraged to apply.

The LOI form is available now with submissions due by July 24, 2024.

For more information and to read the Proof of Concept LOI guidelines, visit the website.
