Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International academic centers to support a fellowship program for neurologists. Grant funds may be used for fellows' stipends, benefits, and travel. Fellowships are intended to increase the number of trained specialists in the area of Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders.

Movement disorder specialists (neurologists with subspecialty training in Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders) serve as an important bridge between scientific advances in the lab and positive patient outcomes in the care setting.

While the demand for movement disorder specialists is increasing, not enough neurologists are receiving this vital training. To address this unmet need, The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF), in collaboration with longtime partner the Edmond J. Safra Foundation, introduced The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders. By funding academic centers to train new movement disorder clinician-researchers, this program aims to develop a network of highly-trained specialists to be the next generation of leaders in Parkinson's research and clinical care.

Applications from movement disorder centers will be evaluated on the following criteria:

  • Previous experience training fellows for productive research and clinical care careers
  • Research environment and research training program
  • Clinical care center and clinical learning opportunities
  • Departmental support for the fellow
  • Leadership in building an equitable and diverse environment for clinical care, research and education through educational opportunities and scholarly pursuit for the fellow
  • Biographical sketches of five faculty members, including the fellowship director, who will be active in the training program

Number of Grants:

MJFF will award eight fellowships.

Estimated Size of Grant:

MJFF will award $90,000 per fellow per year, $180,000 total.

Term of Contract:

The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders awards funding to academic centers to train a new movement disorder clinician-researcher over a two-year period.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders is open to established movement disorder centers worldwide and seeks to support promising MD and MD/PhD applicants.

The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders is open to academic centers worldwide; previously awarded centers qualify to apply.

To allow centers time to identify the most competitive recipients, MJFF will award funding directly to qualified centers. Centers must then nominate prospective fellows for final review by MJFF. Individual fellowship applicants are not eligible but are encouraged to inform institutions about this funding opportunity.

As the program is designed to expand the capacity of leading centers to train movement disorder fellows, awarded centers must identify and support a new fellow. Funding cannot be used to support a fellow already enrolled in or selected for the center’s fellowship program.

Pre-proposal Conference:

On Tuesday, November 3, 2020 at 3 p.m. ET, MJFF is hosting a teleconference to answer questions related to the application, program and funding process. To join the session:
