Announcing the International Outreach Scholarship Program

The ANA recognizes that our goal to reduce the high burden of neurological disease through research, education, clinical care, and advocacy is shared globally.

The American Neurological Association International Outreach Committee (ANA IOC) is pleased to announce the first international outreach scholarship program, designed for residents, fellows and junior faculty in neurology who are members of the ANA. This year, we will be offering up to two (2) scholarships to facilitate a person in training in neurology to work in low to lower-middle income countries (as defined by the World Bank) for a minimum of six (6) weeks in the upcoming academic year. This application will require the support of an in-country host as well as an ANA mentor in the resident, fellow or junior faculty member's location of training. All applicants must be in good standing in their current training program. 

Please see guidelines for full information on this new opportunity: IOC Scholarship Guidelines.

The applications window opens on Monday, May 8, 2017. The IOC Scholarship Application form can be found by accessing the link below or on the IOC page of the ANA Website: IOC Scholarship Application

All applications must be submitted by Monday, July 10, 2017, and will be reviewed by the ANA. Applications will be evaluated on their ability to enhance both the host country's and the applicants needs as well as represent the purposes of the ANA. 

The two (2) recipients of the scholarship will be announced at this year's ANA Annual Meeting in San Diego, October 15-17, and all applicants are encouraged to attend.
