The Grant to Activate Global Engagement (GAGE) Funding was first established in 2020 as a response to the global COVID-19 pandemic and successfully supported efforts to engage global neurologists in the American Neurological Association's (ANA) virtual annual meeting.
The 2022-2023 GAGE opportunity will be leveraged to provide up to four grants valued at up to $2,000 (USD) each to support neurology education and/or research symposia held locally in low and lower-middle income countries (LIC/LMIC). Applications will be accepted from individuals or groups from LIC/LMIC as designated by the World Bank. The application deadline is Friday, December 30, 2022.
