AASAN Scholarship

The AASAN scholarship program provides funding to residents in the US/Canada to visit member countries to present research work, or to observe the practice of neurosurgery in those countries.

In December 2010, AASAN sponsored several residents to attend the joint meeting of the Neurological Society of India (NSI) and the Congress of Neurological Surgeons (CNS) in Jaipur, India.
