Adkins, JD.

Travel Scholarship Eligibility Criteria:
  • Must have a medical degree or foreign equivalent
  • Must reside and/or practice in an economically developing country
  • Must have an interest in neuromuscular and/or electrodiagnostic medicine 
The ANF and IFCN international scholarship recipients receive:

  • Free annual meeting registration
Applicants who submit abstracts for the 2022 AANEM Annual Meeting must have them in by the March 15, 2022 deadline. Selected applicants will be notified in the summer of 2022. 

If you submit an abstract, apply for the travel scholarship during the abstract submission process.
