Advanced Practice Providers are critical members of the neurology care team. However, the funding for professional development for APPs varies widely, and APPs often must decide between competing conferences and meetings. APP attendance at the AAN Annual Meeting has been steadily increasing, and the AAN would like to support APP participation at Annual Meeting, by awarding two $2000 scholarships in 2018.
The $2000 scholarship is to reimburse expenses associated with attendance at the Annual Meeting. The scholarship will be mailed to the recipients 8-12 weeks following the Annual Meeting. The recipients will be responsible for arranging their own registration, travel, and lodging. Expenses over $2000 will be the recipient’s responsibility.
2018 Nomination/Application Deadline: December 31, 2017.
