Multiple Sclerosis Research Australia (MSRA): Ian Ballard Travel Award

Scheme overview

Ian Ballard was an inspirational person with MS who valued the importance of research into multiple sclerosis. He founded Foundation 5 Million (F5M) with the idea that if 2,500 people with MS and their families and friends could raise $2,000 each, we could rapidly raise $5 million to fund MS research.

Unfortunately Ian passed away from a heart attack in 2008 before he could see F5M achieve its goal of raising $5 million in 2011.

This travel award has been named in his honour by offering a fellowship to an Australian researcher to travel abroad to enhance their training and grow international collaborations.

Ian Ballard Travel Awards are intended to enable recipients to undertake an international travel tour with the aim of extending and collaborating on their MS research specialty.

Funding available

$25,000 maximum to be used within one year of award
