Minority Research Scholars Program
The Child Neurologist Career Development Program and the Child Neurology Society are pleased to invite applications for the Minority Research Scholars Program.
This program awards travel scholarships to early career individuals who are underrepresented in the health sciences and who are pursuing clinically relevant basic or patient-oriented research. Awardees have the opportunity to attend the CNCDP-K12 annual scientific retreat and Annual Child Neurology Society Meeting. During the scientific retreat, attendees will meet with NINDS staff to learn more about targeted funding initiatives to support the success of underrepresented scientists, engage in sessions on oral scientific communication and grant writing, and network with a cohort of peers and faculty mentors. Selected recipients receive travel support and waived registration for all program events.
