International Guest Scholarships

The International Guest Scholarships are aimed at early career surgeons who have completed their surgical training. They should be over the age of 35 but under the age of 50 and be able to demonstrate an interest in teaching or research in their home country. The scholarship provides funding of $10,000 to cover attendance at the American College of Surgeons Meeting, and visits to clinics or institutions of the surgeon's choice following the congress.
