AANS/CNS Cerebrovascular Section Research Grant

As a premier funder of neurosurgical studies, the Neurosurgery Research & Education Foundation (NREF) is pleased to introduce a new program – the AANS/CNS Cerebrovascular Section Research Grant.

The objective of the grant is to provide sustained research startup funding for early-stage academic neurosurgeon-scientists in the field of cerebrovascular disease.

Eligibility Criteria: Applicants must be board-eligible cerebrovascular and/or endovascular fellowship-trained neurosurgeons, in the first three (3) years of full-time faculty position at the start of the funding period. Applicants must be active members in good standing of the AANS/CNS Cerebrovascular Section (“CV Section”). Fellows may apply in the final year of fellowship, as long as a faculty position is confirmed prior to the start of the funding period. The faculty position must be at a teaching institution in North America.

The selection committee and/or officers of the AANS/CNS Cerebrovascular Section review the applications and reserve the right to make a final decision regarding the eligibility of a specific applicant.
