The McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience

Program Goal: Bring science closer to the day when diseases of the brain and behavior can be accurately diagnosed, prevented, and treated.

The McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience is an independent charitable organization, established by the McKnight Foundation, that works to bring science closer to the day when diseases of the brain and behavior can be accurately diagnosed, prevented, and treated.

The Endowment Fund supports innovative research through three competitive annual awards that seek out investigators whose research shows promise in bringing society closer to preventing, treating, and curing many devastating diseases. Research supported by the Endowment Fund has furthered understanding of such impairments as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, and many others.

The Endowment Fund for Neuroscience administers three awards. For information on each award—including application deadlines, eligibility requirements, past recipients, and other details—follow the links below.
