Alzheimer’s Association Research Grant (AARG) - The Alzheimer’s Association Research Grant aims to fund investigators who are less than 10 years past their doctoral or post residency (MD or DO) or investigators that are new to the field of neuroscience or neurodegeneration (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lewy body dementia, etc) will be considered. The purpose of this program is to provide newly independent investigators with funding that will allow them to develop preliminary or pilot data, to test procedures and to develop hypotheses.

Alzheimer’s Association Research Grant to Promote Diversity (AARG-D) - The Alzheimer’s Association Research Grant to Promote Diversity is aimed to increase the number of scientist from underrepresented groups at academic institutions in Alzheimer’s or related dementias research. The AARG-D aims to fund investigators who are less than 10 years past their doctoral or post residency (MD or DO) or investigators that are new to the field of neuroscience or neurodegeneration (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Lewy body dementia, etc) will be considered.

Alzheimer’s Association Research Fellowship (AARF) - The Alzheimer’s Association Research Fellowship Award Program is intended to support exceptional researchers who are engaged in their post-graduate work (i.e. postdoctoral fellows) and before they have their first independent faculty positions (i.e. Assistant Professor) with the goal of bridging the fellow to faculty positions of researchers.

Alzheimer’s Association Research Fellowship to Promote Diversity (AARF-D) - The Alzheimer’s Association Research Fellowship Award to Promote Diversity Program is intended to support exceptional researchers who are currently underrepresented at academic institutions in Alzheimer’s or related dementias research and who are engaged in their post-graduate work (i.e. postdoctoral fellows) and before they have their first independent faculty positions (i.e. Assistant Professor) with the goal of bridging fellow to faculty position of researchers.

Alzheimer’s Association Clinician Scientist Fellowship (AACSF) - The Alzheimer's Association recognizes the need to support the training of clinician scientists in Alzheimer's and related dementias. For the purpose of this program, a clinician scientist is defined as an individual already trained, licensed and practicing in a clinical field that includes patient contact (e.g., neurology, psychiatry, geriatrics, psychology) or patient-related diagnostic studies (e.g., neuropathology and radiology). Individuals who have a position of an Assistant Professorship or above are not eligible. Please note individuals must be currently in a clinical setting.

Alzheimer’s Association Clinician Scientist Fellowship to Promote Diversity (AACSF-D) - The Alzheimer’s Association Clinician Scientist Fellowship to Promote Diversity is intended to support exceptional clinician scientist who are currently underrepresented at academic institutions in clinical research training in Alzheimer's and related dementias. For the purpose of this fellowship, clinical research is defined as patient-oriented research conducted with human subjects, or translational research specifically designed to develop treatments or enhance diagnosis of neurological disease. Individuals who have a position of an Assistant Professorship or above are not eligible. Please note individuals must be currently in a clinical setting.
