The Parkinson's Foundation application process is highly competitive and only five percent of all proposals receive funding. To make the process more efficient for both applicants and reviewers, they require a two-step application. Initially, they ask applicants to send a Letter of Intent. If selected by reviewers, the applicant can proceed to submit a full proposal.

You must submit the application online; they will not accept paper copies. The Parkinson's Foundation will only consider funding applicants who submit intent letters by the specified deadline. They will notify applicants invited to submit a full proposal at least six weeks prior to the full application deadline.
