How to apply for a MS Society Research Grant

The MS Society supports research in the field of MS in order to improve understanding of the causes and development of the disease, to further develop treatment options, and to improve quality of life for people with MS and their families.

For the 2023/2024 period the Swiss MS Society supports research projects with 1.5 Mio CHF. Additionally, the support of the Swiss MS Registry and the Swiss Cohort Study is being continued. We support research to end MS and to improve the quality of life of those living with MS.

Research grant applications

The next call will be published by the end of 2024 for the 2025/2026 period.



The evaluation and funding procedures are led by the Scientific Grant Committee, an independent and neutral committee presided in 2023/2024 by Prof. Dr. Pasquale Calabrese, Basel. Members of the committee are national and international experts, and persons with MS who are experts of living with their disease.

Each application is evaluated by two external experts and given a score from 3-6. In addition, the applications are evaluated by the Scientific Grant Committee. Based on these evaluations, the Scientific Grant Committee submits their proposal to the Board of the MS Society which makes the final decision. By August 2023 we will let applicants know whether their application has been approved.
