Charlie Kuntz Scholar Awards
Created in memory of neurosurgeon Charles Kuntz IV, these new scholarships are awarded annually to the top 30 neurosurgical residents or fellows who author outstanding abstracts detailing a laboratory or clinical investigation in the area of spinal disorders. Individuals in both MD and DO training programs are encouraged to apply. Award winners receive an honorarium.
The Kuntz scholars will be announced at the annual Spine Summit, held in spring. Attendance at Spine Summit is required. Winning abstract authors will deliver their oral presentations during the scientific program and be honored at the Young Neurosurgeons dinner where they will receive their award certificate and honorarium.
Kuntz scholars are also invited to submit their completed manuscripts to either Neurosurgery or the Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine for expedited review and publication consideration. (Note: Kuntz scholar manuscripts are not guaranteed publication.)
Deadline: Same as abstract submission deadline.
Submission Process: Submitted at the same time as abstract submission.
