Proposals due 10/31/2023

BrightFocus is committed to supporting scientists from diverse backgrounds to foster creativity and innovation in addressing complex scientific challenges. We strongly encourage applications from individuals who are from groups underrepresented in the field of Alzheimer’s disease research.

The ADR program offers two types of awards:

Standard Awards
The standard award provides significant funding for researchers who have already generated some amount of preliminary data, but are often required to demonstrate additional, significant progress before they can apply to governmental or industrial funding agencies.

Award Amount: $300,000
Duration: 3 years

Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards
Postdoctoral fellowship awards are intended for young researchers in their final stages of mentored training. These awards fund projects in an established laboratory that will serve as the basis for the applicant’s own independent research career.

Award Amount: $200,000
Duration: 2 years
