A call for scholarships was published in the spring of 2020 and will award scholarships to exceptional graduate students and postdoctoral fellows conducting research related to the early detection and prevention of PD. PIs may also apply without a specific student, to allow them to search for a relevant student. After initial acceptance of funding for unnamed student, final acceptance must be cleared with APPD committee once student or post-doc is chosen.
