The AANI and the American Brain Foundation are the official sponsors of the resident scholarship to the Annual Meeting.
The resident scholarship program is an effort to recognize the importance of resident attendance at the AAN Annual Meeting. In order to receive one of the scholarships, residents need to be nominated by their Program Director. The $1,000 scholarship is used to reimburse resident expenses associated with attendance at the Annual Meeting. If a program is located in the immediate vicinity of the Annual Meeting, the scholarship will be $500.The scholarship will be given as an unrestricted educational grant to the resident's institution and mailed to the Program Director 8-12 weeks following the Annual Meeting.
The resident receiving the scholarship must be reimbursed promptly after the receipt of the educational grant from the AAN. Programs are responsible for providing the AAN with the correct check payable to, check attention to and complete address for which the check should be sent and are responsible for providing the AAN with any changes.

The resident scholarship nomination application materials are reviewed by a panel of members from the Graduate Education Subcommittee (GES).
In an effort to bring more residents to the AAN Annual Meeting, a fund was established through the AAN Foundation to provide more Resident Annual Meeting Scholarships using donated honoraria from AAN CME faculty. Depending on the amount of donated honoraria the AAN will award additional scholarships for the 2012 AAN Annual Meeting. Therefore, each program may nominate ONE ADDITIONAL resident for a possible resident scholarship. The GES will apply the existing application/nominating criteria, selection process, and deadlines to the additional pool of scholarship applications.
In order for the application to be considered complete, nominating program directors or program coordinators on behalf of their program directors, must submit one complete set of the following materials:
