All nominations for the award must be provided to the Committee at least one calendar year prior to the next World Congress.

The final selection of the winner will be made by polling between the Committee members. The selection process will be confidential.

c) Award: The officers of the WFNS will be notified of the recipient. The recipient will be invited to the Congress and receive a Steuben glass bowl, suitably inscribed, together with a monetary award of US$ 5,000. The award will be presented during the Opening Ceremony of the Congress.

Note: The William Beecher Scoville Award created in his memory by his family and awarded for the first time in 1993. Dr. Scoville was an inventive neurosurgeon who was well known for having developed the aneurysm clip that bears his name, as well as for his innovations in such areas as the surgery of seizure disorders and cervical disc diseases. Dr Scoville was a world traveller and enthusiastic supporter of the WFNS. Not surprisingly, the criteria for the selection of awardees are that the individual has notably advanced the art and science of neurosurgery and has contributed to global communications among neurosurgeons, preferably through the WFNS.
