AINA Lifetime Achievement Award
The AINA Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes a leader in neurology by her/his peers. The recipient will be a North American neurologist chosen based on her/his dedication in advancing the training of North American neurologists of Indian origin and promoting innovation and research in the field of neurology. The recipient will have supported Indian neurologists over a significant period of time in achieving meaningful progress toward expressed goals.
Neurology Trainee Award
Any in-training neurologist of Indian origin and who is also a first or senior author on an abstract accepted to the American Academy of Neurology meeting is eligible for the award. You must be virtually present at the AINA Annual Meeting in the current year to receive the award. There will be three award winners based upon a review team. The top three abstracts will receive $500, $250, and $100, respectively, and a recognition plaque at the AINA Virtual Meeting.
AINA-IAN Neurology Observership Program
Currently on hold due to COVID-10, this program funds 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.
