The Wisconsin Neurological Society is now accepting applications for the Bennett Hiner Research Award. The Award is presenting to a medical student enrolled at one of the state’s medical schools in recognition for extra-ordinary service, leadership and research in the neurosciences and allied-health students.
This award is in memory of Bennett Hiner, son of long-time Society member Dr. Bradley Hiner. Bennett passed away unexpectedly in November of 2011. He was a leader in his medical school class at the University of Southern California and actively involved in neuroscience research.
Qualified applicants are medical students enrolled in either the Medical College of Wisconsin or the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health; graduate and allied health students who have completed neuroscience research within two years of the application for the award; have demonstrated leadership experience while enrolled in medical school or graduate programs; and have submitted the application and research abstract.
Applicants should submit their applications and abstracts to the WNS Office by July 31, 2020. A winner will be selected by August 31, and notified in September. The Society will invite the Award winner to the WNS Annual Conference, during lunch on Saturday, October 17 at the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells.
