Memorial Deadline: Tuesday 1st, November 2022

The Alzheimer Society Research Program (ASRP) is one of Canada’s most innovative hubs for dementia research, helping the best and brightest minds in the field spark their work from ideas to impact.

The ASRP is changing dementia research in Canada

Since the Program’s start in 1989, we have invested over $70 million in grants and awards toward innovative research that brings us closer to a future without Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

The ASRP has two goals

  • Encourage researchers to explore radical new ways to advance our knowledge of dementia, and
  • Improve the quality of life for people living with dementia, their families and caregivers.

Starting in 2019, the ASRP has shifted into an open competition that will focus on varying funding priorities: Basic science research, clinical, health services and population health. Applications in other aspects of dementia research, such as cause, prevention, risk, technology, social science and psychosocial interventions are also considered.

The ASRP offers funding in four categories: Doctoral, Postdoctoral, the New Investigator Operating Grant and the Proof of Concept Grant.

Application deadline: Friday, November 4, 2022, 5:00 p.m. EST
