• Clinical Scientist Career Development

    The CNS Foundation is grateful for its partnership with Congress of Neurological SurgeonsThe National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH). Together, these organizations fund the biennial NINDS/CNS Getch Scholar K12 Award, one of neurosurgery’s most prestigious awards.

    International Philanthropy

    The CNS Foundation encourages the funding of observerships to allow young surgeons from overseas to visit American institutions for mentorship and extended learning opportunities. These exchanges help the neurosurgical community build collaborative relations with our international partners. Through these efforts, the CNS Foundation will begin to philanthropically extend our support where the neurosurgeon-to-patient ratio is critically low.

    Learn More About Observerships

    If interested in applying for or sponsoring an observership, please contact Courtney Johnson at CJohnson@CNS.org.

    CNS Guidelines Initiative

    The CNS Foundation proudly supports the development, review and dissemination of guidelines of CNS Guidelines. Donations may be purposed either for the funding of a specific guideline, toward the general funding of high-quality, evidence-based, clinical practice guidelines, or towards tools and activities for disseminating guidelines to the worldwide community of neurosurgeons.
