One year grant up to a maximum of $75,000 will be awarded to research scientists (MD, MD/PhD, or PhD). The same investigator can reapply the following year to be considered for a second consecutive year of funding. When submitting applications for a grant on the same subject for the second consecutive year, the applicant will also submit a report of the results obtained during the prior APDA funding year.

The applicants will receive notification of the decision in June 2023. The APDA grant year runs from September 1st, 2023, to August 31st, 2024.


APDA Research Grants are intended to support research aimed at developing new insights into the pathophysiology, etiology and/or treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Grant proposals can address research questions anywhere along the pipeline from basic science to rehabilitation-focused projects. APDA seeks to promote the entry of new investigators into the field of Parkinson research, as well as to support important new ideas in the field worthy of investigation.


All research scientists in the field of Parkinson’s research can apply, including scientists from outside the US. The selection committee will more favorably consider researchers who are new to the field of Parkinson’s disease.
