ANNUAL REPORT
19
Since 1980, the Neurosurgery Research and Education Foundation (NREF) has served as the premier funder
of neurosurgical research and education. Each year, the NREF provides fellowship funding for training in the
neurosciences to neurosurgical programs in North America. Since 2010, the NREF has provided funding for
more than 71 post-residency clinical fellowships in more than 40 neurosurgery training programs
Funding for fellowship training is made possible by industry supporters and may be available in areas such
as spine, endovascular, pediatric, stereotactic and tumor neurosurgery. The NREF Educational Grants
Committee, composed of AANS member neurosurgeons, reviews applications from training institutions,
makes funding determinations and is responsible for all aspects of this grants program. The neurosurgeons
on the Educational Grants Committee do not receive financial or other support from the medical-device
industry; these committee members review and
approve the grant applications in an independent and
unbiased manner. These individuals do not receive
compensation for their efforts. Corporate supporters
have no role in the selection of fellows or training
institutions that receive fellowship funding.
