MSIF-ECTRIMS McDonald Fellowship

Starting in 2016, MSIF (Multiple Sclerosis International Federation) and ECTRIMS jointly support a 2-year McDonald fellowship every year.
This fellowship is offered to young researchers from emerging countries and enables the recipient to travel to an established research institution anywhere in the world to work with leading researchers in the field of MS. It is intended that these fellows return to their home countries after finishing the fellowship program to establish their own research using the newly learned techniques.

Details of the programme and the fellowship proposal process can be found on the MSIF fellowships website.
