We are incredibly pleased to announce the recipient of the first Jackson Mooney Dystonia Patient Grant - Neil Merovitch! Neil is currently pursuing his Phd in Molecular Genetics at University of Toronto. Congratulations!
we thank all the applicants for their submission. Please do consider applying next year.
The Jackson Mooney Dystonia Patient Grant was established to provide financial assistance of up to $5,000.00 for Canadian residents who are living with dystonia, in financial need and committed to enhancing their current situation through furthering their education. To qualify for this grant, an individual must:
• Have been diagnosed by a medical professional as having dystonia;
• Be a Canadian citizen or a Permanent Resident with Canada as their primary home;
• Be able to confirm either: you are in the process of acquiring further education or skills to accommodate a change in career because of your dystonia, and able to demonstrate a financial need due to severely impacted work or lifestyle changes because of their dystonia; or you are in the process of furthering their education through post-secondary education of some kind.
If you are interested in applying for the 2018 Jackson Mooney Patient Grant, please submit a letter of interest to DMRF Canada by February 1, 2018, explaining your personal situation and detailing how you would plan to use the grant funds.
