The Lewy Body Dementia Association is proud to announce the creation of a new grant program, “The LBDA Mentorship Program Award.” The initiative will enable the mentorship of young or experienced investigators, committed to clinical research in the Lewy body dementia arena, by seasoned, established LBD investigators. LBDA has committed $100,000 over 5 years to fund the program.
The goal of the program is to promote the continued development of newly trained clinician-researchers, or experienced clinician-researchers new to LBD, into world-class LBD investigators. This might include individuals with fellowship training in movement disorders, behavioral neurology, geriatric psychiatry, or geriatric medicine.
$4,000 (including up to a maximum of 10% indirect costs) for the mentee’s proposed project and/or mentee conference/travel costs. Mentors will be offered a $2,000 honorarium
The submission deadline for applications is Friday, Dec. 3, 2021, by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Details are available in the full request for proposal.
