We are pleased to announce the first ever dystonia patient grant, developed and funded by a very generous donor and established in partnership with the DMRF Canada.
The Jackson Mooney Dystonia Patient Grant has been 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.
The Deadline for Applications is July 15, 2017. A decision will be announced by August 18, 2017. Please refer to the following two documents for additional details, or email Trisha Mondal: Trishamondal@dystonicaanada.org
