American Academy of Neurology: Career Development Award

The American Academy of Neurology invites applications for its Career Development Award. Grants of $150,000 per year for three years will be awarded in support of junior investigators interested in an academic career in neurology. Investigators may also be interested in clinical, basic, or translational neurological research.

Recipients of individual K or R awards are not eligible to apply for the Career Development Award (CDA). Applicants are allowed to apply for the AAN CDA and other federally funded career development awards (including NIH K awards and VA CDAs) or other career development awards supported by foundations of a similar scope simultaneously. To be eligible to apply for this award, the applicant’s other grant source(s) cannot exceed $150,000 annually.

Applicants must be a neurologist and an AAN member who completed residency between five and ten years prior to the start date of the Career Development Award (July 1, 2022). For those who have completed both residency and a PhD, eligibility is based on when residency was completed.

Please contact Lynn Wong if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
