Applicants for the Travel Bursary must submit an abstract to BRAIN & BRAIN PET 2019 for either oral or poster presentation as first/presenting author and belong to one of the following two groups:

Student ECI – Students who are enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, professional degree, or medical specialty program (e.g., bachelors, masters or PhD student; graduate student; medical student; neurology, neurosurgery or anesthesia resident or trainee; etc.)

Scholar ECI – Scholars with PhD, MD or equivalent degree who have been in a research training program for less than 5 years since obtaining their last degree (e.g., research fellow; postdoctoral associate; postdoctoral fellow; etc.)


The recipients of the travel stipends will be selected by the Program Committee of the Society based upon:

• An indication on the abstract submission form confirming the primary author is eligible for the award
