Apply for Junior Traveling Fellowships

By Steven L. Lewis and Wolfgang Grisold

This year, the WFN will again offer Junior Traveling Fellowships for young neurologists representing countries classified by the World Bank as low or lower middle income to attend approved international meetings. The deadline for applications is March 15.

In total, there will be 30 awards. Applicants should hold a post not above that of an associate professor and be no older than 45 years of age. Candidates are asked to send the name and dates of the meeting they wish to attend, a CV and bibliography. Applicants must also send a letter of recommendation from the head of his or her department and an estimate of expenses, to a maximum of $1,440. No excess will be granted.

Applicants must actively participate in the meeting they attend (presentation, poster, etc.). WFN also encourages applicants to submit an abstract and attach a copy of the abstract to the application.

WFN’s Education Committee will review all applications and announce the awards soon thereafter.

Dr. Lewis is chair, and Dr. Grisold is co–chair of WFN’s Education Committee.
