ASNR TRAVEL FELLOWSHIPS FOR DIVERSITY

WE INVITE YOU TO APPLY FOR A TRAVEL GRANT!

ASNR is pleased to announce the availability of travel fellowships in the amount of $500 each for under-represented individuals interested in the field of neurorehabilitation. The fellowships are intended to offset the costs of traveling to the 2019 ASNR Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois.

Groups underrepresented in the biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences are defined by the NIH as people with disabilities and underrepresented racial and ethnic groups such as blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, American Indians or Alaskan Natives, and Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders.

Veterans and those with disabilities from birth, trauma, or disease are also eligible. Individuals with disabilities are defined as those with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.  Please upload proof that the disability is documented in your training or employment record OR a statement on how the disability substantially limits one or more major life activities and how the disability has been accommodated by your school or place of employment.

Only applications from individuals meeting these criteria will be considered for the ASNR Travel Fellowships for Diversity.

Applicants need not be ASNR members, but are limited to citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States or to individuals who have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence in the United States (i.e., in possession of an Alien Registration Receipt Card or some other legal evidence of admission for permanent residence at the time of application). 

Postdocs, residents and students are eligible for the fellowship. Awardees will be selected according to their academic background, experience, and research interests.

IF YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR THIS GRANT, PLEASE BE SO KIND AS TO FORWARD IT ONTO SOMEONE WHO IS!

HOW TO APPLY
