Our funding guidelines

The Tom Wahlig Foundation supports two to three individual projects each year, each worth around € 10-15,000, which are used to research hereditary spastic paraplegia.

NEW: The deadline for submitting projects is July 15th. (Due to scheduling reasons, the 2021 funding round has already been completed. We will accept the next applications by July 15, 2022.)

A decision by the foundations´s board will be based on reviews of anonymous experts from the field. Successful applicants will be notified by February 1st, and are expected to shortly present their projects at the annual HSP symposium in March.

For funded projects, we will additionally request a summary in layman´s terms to be published on the foundation´s webpage, and an annual progress report. we also expect that awardees will be available as reviewers in subsequent years.
