Alzheimer’s Society Project Grants

Alzheimer's Society LogoAre you an established dementia researcher looking for support to follow your next big idea? Our Alzheimer’s Society Project Grants are for researchers to carry out world-class dementia research. These flexible grants can include funding for pilot, springboard, and seed funding applications. 


Applicants may apply for direct costs of up to £400,000 to support their research including staff salary, consumables, and equipment. Funding is available for up to three years depending on the project type. However, we support researchers and their research teams to work flexibly to meet personal circumstances.

See applicant guidance for more details. All costs must be justified.


Project grants must be held at a UK based University, NHS site, or other recognised higher research institution. Principal Investigators should have a contract of employment with the host institution that exceeds the planned finish date.

Alzheimer’s Society is a proud supporter of early career researchers (ECRs) and strongly encourage all applications to include their ECRs as co-applicants in the applications. This can apply to post-doctoral researchers, clinical staff, technicians, or others. If you have any difficulties with institution regulations, please contact us.

For full eligibility criteria, please check our Applicant Guidance.


Alzheimer’s Society funds cutting-edge research into dementia. Applications are accepted for research projects addressing key unanswered questions within the dementia field.

Applicants should consider how their project can contribute to Alzheimer’s Society’s strategy and research mission.

Applicants must explain how their project contributes to the dementia field within these themes as alignment to our mission is incorporated into our scoring system at review.
