The fully-funded Fellowship program is a prestigious scholarship program that has been providing career-enhancing opportunities for graduate students in the area of Multiple Sclerosis.  Funds from this fellowship provide support to promising early-career neuroscientists who are pursuing a masters or PhD degree in Multiple sclerosis(Multiple sclerosis is an auto-immune disease that impacts the brain and spinal cord. These areas control everything we do, everything we feel, everything we think, everything we want.) and have demonstrated a commitment to conducting research in this area.

In addition to receiving funding, McDonald Fellows also receive mentorship from experts in the field,
which can prove invaluable as they make their way through the intricacies of academic life.
Though the fellowship requires completion of an advanced degree and promises only two years of
funding, many past recipients have gone on to successful careers and foundations or even
full-time careers in academic research.
