Fellowships


ASCoN Fellowship awards are presented each year at the ASCoN Conference to the best oral and poster presentations. The ASCoN Fellowship Award enables recipients to undertake further study in their field of work. This may be a short term placement at an internationally renowned institution where comprehensive spinal cord injury management is provided to patients. Alternatively it can support study within the recipient’s own country if a suitable external placement cannot be provided. The Award carries with it a monetary value of €2,000 which is utilised to support course fees, travel and accommodation costs whilst undertaking the Fellowship.
