Junior Travelling Fellowships

JFT 2017

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

Applications for 2023 would be most welcome.

Applications for 2023

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.

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. The submission of an abstract is expected. A copy of the abstract should also be included.

Applications are exclusively submitted using the WFN JTF online application form no later than Friday, 24th February 2023.  

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.

Please note: Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously been awarded a Junior Travelling Fellowship and those applying for the World Congress of Neurology 2023, Montreal.

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


With best regards

Steven Lewis
Chair of the Education Committee
