Several young physician investigators will be selected, based upon the ranking of the applicant's abstract by the Program Committee.
Applicant must be: (1) a current ACNS member or apply for membership concurrent with application for the Award; (2) a resident, fellow, or junior faculty within two years of completion of fellowship training; and (3) be the first author of an abstract submitted to the Annual Meeting. Applicant must meet the entire aforementioned criteria in order to be considered for the Young Investigator Award. Prior award recipients are not eligible for an additional award.
Awardees will be chosen based on the quality of submitted abstracts, as ranked by the ACNS Program Committee. A total of six fellowships will be awarded for the ACNS 2023 Annual Meeting & Courses. Additional travel awards may be awarded if funding is available.
Upon close of abstract submission, the ACNS Program Committee will review, evaluate, and rank abstracts, including all candidates for consideration to receive an award. The Program Committee Co-Chairs will select the final six awardees based on the collective rankings from the Program Committee. ACNS will notify awardees of a decision no later than February 1, 2023. Awardees will then be expected to accept the invitation by the deadlines set forth in their acceptance notifications, as well as register for the Annual Meeting.
Award recipients are expected to register to attend the Annual Meeting by the deadlines set forth in their acceptance notification. If an award recipient cancels their registration prior to the meeting, the Travel Award may be withdrawn from the individual and designated to another candidate.
The deadline for applications is January 11, 2023 and must occur at the time of poster abstract submission.
