Alzheimer’s Association Research Grant (AARG)

The Alzheimer’s Association Research Grant aims to fund investigators who are less than 15 years past their doctoral or post residency (MD or DO). 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. Applicants must be Assistant Professors or above at their respective institution.

Alzheimer’s Association Research Grant to Promote Diversity (AARG-D)

The Alzheimer’s Association Research Grant to Promote Diversity award is up to three years (minimum 2 years) to increase the number of scientists from underrepresented groups at academic institutions in Alzheimer’s or all dementias research. The AARG-D aims to fund investigators who are less than 15 years past their doctoral or post residency (MD or DO)Applicants must be Assistant Professors or above at their respective institution.

Alzheimer’s Association Research Grant - New to the Field (AARG-NTF)

The Alzheimer’s Association Research Grant – New to the Field aims to fund investigators who are new to Alzheimer’s and all dementia field of research. The purpose of this program is to provide independent investigators with unique expertise and apply their knowledge to Alzheimer’s and all dementias. This program is not intended for investigators that have and/or are working in neurodegeneration-related research; this program is intended for investigators from other disciplines applying their expertise to Alzheimer’s and all dementia research. The goal of the New to the Field program is to provide an opportunity for investigators with expertise outside neurodegenerative research to apply their expertise to advance and accelerate Alzheimer’s disease and all dementia research. Competitive applications to this program emphasize how the specific expertise/approach will advance research.

Alzheimer’s Association Research Fellowship (AARF)

The Alzheimer’s Association Research Fellowship Award is up to three years (minimum 2 years) 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) and working in diverse areas of research, including basic, translational, clinical, functional and social-behavioral research. Individuals who have a position of an Assistant Professorship or above are not eligible.
