The ALS MND Patient Fellows Program helps people with ALS MND to participate in the largest annual symposium dedicated to ALS MND research. The 2019 International Symposium on ALS MND will be held 4-6 December 2019 in Perth, Australia. The ALS MND Patient Fellows Program anticipate funding up to five Patient Fellowships for the Symposium and applications for a Fellowship close 19 August 2019. People diagnosed with ALS or MND may apply.
The selection committee has a blinded evaluation process to try to identify those applicants who will benefit the most from the science and then will share their Symposium experiences and opinions with other people with ALS MND and the research community.
The Fellowship includes:
-- Prepaid registration at the Symposium in Perth for the person with ALS and one caregiver. Information about the Symposium itself can be found at https://symposium.mndassociation.org/
-- Basic hotel accommodation for five nights starting December 1.
-- Possible stipend of up to $1000 to help with travel expense (provided after the symposium).
-- A valuable experience with four other people with ALS and ALS researchers from around the world.
