The MS International Federation offers Du Pré Grants to young MS researchers from emerging countries* to enable them to make short visits to established MS research centres, either to learn from each other or to carry out parts of joint research projects.
The aim is to encourage cross-fertilisation of skills through collaborative research projects.
Each grant is likely to be between UK £2,000 and £4,000, to a maximum of £5,000. The funds are intended to go towards travel and living costs, or to top up an existing grant to extend a visit.
Visits generally last between two and six months. The MS International Federation provides about ten grants per calendar year.
