The American Headache Society will award up to 10 recipients of the “Frontiers in Headache Research” Scholarship Award during the 61st Annual Scientific Meeting in Philadelphia from July 11 to July 14, 2019. Winners will receive complimentary meeting registration and are eligible to receive a stipend of up to $1,000 for reimbursement of expenses for hotel, travel and meals not provided during the Symposium. Winners will also receive a one-year AHS Trainee membership if not already a member of AHS, or a one-year extension of their existing AHS Trainee membership.
