The National MS Society Accepts Research Applications Through its Apply Online System


The online grants management system called MSGrants has been implemented for preparation and submission of research proposals to the Society.  MSGrants can be found at
Please note:
•     Submission of proposals is exclusively electronic for all parts of the proposal, including institutional approval and appendix materials, and no paper copies of any part of the proposal will be accepted by the Society.
•     Passwords for accessing the site never expire and a new password will not be needed for each cycle.
•     Compatible browsers include Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.  Internet Explorer is not fully compatible and should be avoided.  Check with your IT department for information on installing one of these browsers if you do not already have one.

How to Register with the Apply Online System

If you do not already have a password, you will need to register and be approved for access to the Web site.  Go to to complete the online registration form and submit your registration by clicking on the words “Submit Request.”  This will submit your request for access to the site to the Research Programs staff of the Society.  The staff will review your registration information to verify that you are qualified to apply for funding from the Society.  If approved, you will receive an e-mail message containing your login credentials within two business days.  Once you have obtained a user ID and password, go to and log in at the login page.  Once you log in, you will be able to see which funding opportunities are active along with the deadlines for each.  You will also be able to begin the preparation of your application.
