The intent of these awards is to support the growing participation in the Academic Surgical Congress by our international partners. Recognizing the financial burden of international travel to the meeting, these need-based awards serve to encourage participation of international investigators who otherwise would not be able to attend the meeting despite having an accepted abstract.
- This award is open to international investigators who have an abstract accepted for presentation to the 2023 ASC.
- The award is need-based and not merit-based. It is intended to provide financial assistance for international travel that cannot be supported by the investigator or their institution.
- The accepted abstract should not be related to work performed in the US or in a US laboratory.
Three (3) awards will be given. The award includes complimentary registration to the 2023 ASC and a $1,500 stipend to defray the cost of travel to the Congress (stipend will be presented at the ASC during Thursday’s Award Ceremony).
The Application period ends at 11:59pm PST on Wednesday, November 30th, 2022.
