The Neuropsychology International Fellowship (NIF) scheme was initially launched in 2011 by Professor Narinder Kapur, while he was President of the British Neuropsychological Society (BNS) and also a member of the executive committee of the British Psychological Society (BPS) Division of Neuropsychology (DoN). Previously, two NIF awards were made each year amounting to £1,000 each, with one award funded by the BPS Division of Neuropsychology and one by the British Neuropsychological Society.
The awards were primarily intended to support neuropsychologists from developing countries to gain knowledge, skills and experience by spending some time in UK.
