Junior Travelling Fellowships

JFT 2017

This year the WFN is pleased to announce that we will again this year be able to offer Junior Travelling Fellowships (JTFs) for young neurologists from countries classified by the World Bank as Low or Lower Middle Income, to attend approved international meetings.

Applications for 2024 would be most welcome.

Applications for 2024

There will be 30 awards; applicants should be neurologists in training or early in their career, have an M.D. degree or equivalent medical degree, hold a post not above that of Associate Professor, and be no older than 45 years of age at the time of application.

Candidates are asked to send:

  • the name and dates of the meeting they wish to register for;
  • a CV and bibliography;
  • a letter of recommendation from the head of their department; and
  • an estimate of expenses, to a maximum of £1,000, no excess will be granted.

It is expected that applicants participate actively in the meeting (e.g., presentation, poster) that they attend, whether the meeting is virtual or in-person. The submission of an abstract is required. A copy of the abstract should also be included.

Please do not apply for meetings taking place before 1st March 2024.

The transfer of a successful grant award to a different congress is not possible.

All applications will be reviewed by the Education Committee and the awards will be announced as soon as possible thereafter.

After a successful visit, a report and photos are expected for World Neurology.

Applications are exclusively submitted using the WFN JTF online application form no later than Friday, 9th February 2024.  Priority will be given to applicants who have not previously received a JTF award.
