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.  These scholarships can be used to offset the cost of meeting attendance, including conference and workshop registration, travel and lodging, and meals for any students presenting a poster at the conference.  At least six of the scholarships will be designated as Diversity Scholarships, and the others 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; or, c) individuals from socially, culturally, economically, or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds that have inhibited their ability to pursue a career in health-related professions.
