Available Funding

The Trish Foundation is working in association and very closely with MS Research Australia towards our common goal. MS Research Australia annually offers financial support to Australian scientists in the effort to accelerate and increase MS research activity.

MS Research Australia partners with likeminded organisations including the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and the Trish Multiple Sclerosis Research Foundation to leverage our funding and increase the number of opportunities available to researchers.

All projects funded by the Foundation are recommended for funding by MS Research Australia’s Research Management Council following assessment, evaluation and ranking, including a peer-review process. The projects are then considered by the Trish Foundation’s honorary Scientific Research Committee and, having met our firm funding guidelines, are recommended to the Foundation’s Board for approval.
