This year the WFN is again 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. 

Applications for 2016 would be most welcome.

There will be 30 awards; applicants should 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 (presentation, poster…) that they attend. The submission of an abstract is encouraged. A copy of the abstract should also be included.

Applications must be received at the WFN office no later than Tuesday, 15th March 2016.  All applications will be reviewed by the education committee and the awards will be announced as soon as possible thereafter.

With best regards

Steven Lewis

Chair of the Education Committee
