Individual Prizes and Fellowships

Next Generation Award

The Next Generation Award recognizes SfN chapter members who have made outstanding contributions to public communication, outreach, and education about neuroscience.

One award is given at the predoctoral/postdoctoral level and one at the junior faculty level.

Recipients receive a $750 travel award to help defray the cost of attending SfN’s annual meeting and a $300 honorarium. The recipient's chapter receives a $2,000 chapter grant to be used to continue the chapter's outreach efforts in the following year. The SfN president presents the awards at a lecture at the SfN annual meeting. When awarded to a group at the pre/postdoctoral level, each individual receives a $300 honorarium and the chapter should either appoint one person to receive the $750 travel award or determine how to split it among the members.
