Junior Travelling Fellowships

Dear Member Societies and Delegates,

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 2022 would be most welcome.

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, whether the meeting is virtual or in-person. The submission of an abstract is expected. A copy of the abstract should also be included.

Applications are exclusively submitted using the WFN JTF application (see button below) no later than Monday, 14th February 2022.


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 photo is expected for World Neurology.

Please note: Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously been awarded a Junior Travelling Fellowship. The transfer of a successful grant award to a different congress is not possible.
