International Scholarship

The American Neuromuscular Foundation International Scholarships provide an opportunity for physicians who practice in economically developing countries to apply for funds to support their education through attendance at the AANEM Annual Meeting. Up to five International Scholarships are granted annually. All applicants are also automatically considered for scholarships offered through the North American Chapter of the International Federation of Clinical Neurophysiology (IFCN). Up to 15 additional scholarships are offered through the North American Chapter of the IFCN.

***The Application window is January 1 - March 15 each year.

Eligibility Criteria


Application Guidelines

The American Neuromuscular Foundation International Fellowship and the IFCN scholarships have the same eligibility criteria and application process. Physicians who submit an abstract to present at the AANEM Annual Meeting will be given priority. If you are submitting an abstract to the AANEM Annual Meeting, apply for the scholarship during the submission timeframe (January 1 through March 15) using the abstract submission process. Typically, there are only enough awards available to provide scholarships to those submitting abstracts.

If you are not submitting an abstract, apply via the online form during the January 1 - March 15 window.
