AINA-IAN Neurology Observership Program
Endowment/ Sponsorship

Thank you to the following individuals for choosing to endow a scholarship award for young Indian Neurologist coming to train in America under the AINA-IAN Neurology Observership program. These Observerships have become very popular and the program has been there for a couple of years. The idea is to train young Indian Neurologists in advanced neurological care so that they can go back and improve care of Indian patients.

Under this program four young Indian neurologists come for Observership training to the USA. The Indian Academy of Neurology (IAN) sponsors their air tickets and AINA pays each of them $1,000 for their expenses. It is this $1,000 per candidate, that AINA is responsible for, is being converted into an opportunity to endow as a scholarship award.  Each individual has contributed $15,000 to the program and the the sponsorship will support this program for 10 years.

In honor of Mr. KV Govindarajan

"I dedicate this scholarship to my father and my role model Mr. KV Govindarajan. His hard work, humility, and above all his compassion to those in need has inspired me to follow in his footsteps. The recipient of this scholarship should follow the same mantra: hard work, humility, and compassion."

In memory of Dr. Bala V. Manyam, past AINA President

Bala met me when he came to my poster while I was a fellow and introduced me to his fascinating work on testing Indian Ayurvedic medicines using modern scientific methods. He mentored me and supported me to get a NIH grant that resulted in seminal publications that scientifically support the use of Mucuna pruriens in Parkinson’s disease. Bala shared his knowledge, wisdom and advice without any expectations of return - a true Karma Yogi. Let his light remain bright in neurology!
