Travel Scholarships

Each AACN annual meeting features an outstanding lineup of adult, pediatric, and forensic workshops, as well as a series of student-focused activities, including the annual Student Forum, Training Director’s Hour, a student social, and opportunities to meet with experienced neuropsychologists and training faculty. The award money can be used to offset the cost of the meeting attendance, including personal meals (no alcohol), lodging, transportation, poster costs, and non-reimbursed conference fees up to $500. At least six of the twelve scholarships will be designated as Diversity Scholarships. One will be reserved for a student early in his/her training (e.g., an undergraduate or first- or second-year graduate student), and the remaining scholarships will be unrestricted. In order to be considered for the Diversity Scholarship, applicants should be either: a) individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, b) individuals with disabilities, and/or c) individuals from socially, culturally, economically, or educationally diverse backgrounds.
