What's New in Grants & Fellowships
|Van Wagenen Fellowship|
The Neurosurgery Research and Education Foundation (NREF) has a new website. Please visit www.nref.org
The Van Wagenen Fellowship provides residents graduating from a North American training site with private, non-governmental funding, to be used toward overseas travel for medical enrichment prior to beginning an academic career in neurological surgery. It has served as the foundation for the careers of many of neurosurgery’s great educators, whom today hold academic leadership positions at some of the most prestigious neurosurgery programs.
