The ACS continues to offer a limited number of scholarships to Resident Members who are interested in attending the upcoming Leadership & Advocacy Summit, April 15–18, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Washington, DC. This annual Summit is a dual meeting that offers specialized educational sessions focused on effective surgeon leadership, interactive advocacy training, and coordinated visits to Congressional offices. Attending this conference alongside surgery and policy experts represents a valuable opportunity for young surgeons to make an impact in their institutions and in their field.
This scholarship award will cover up to $500 in housing and transportation costs, which may also include your registration fees. Note: You must be a US Resident member in good standing with ACS to be eligible for one of these scholarships.
Scholarships will be awarded to a broad representation of all facets of ACS Resident members. Special consideration will be given for first-time attendees of the Leadership & Advocacy Summit, as well as candidates in the senior years of their residency programs. More than 75 resident scholarship award winners have attended the conference in past years.
Recipients must stay for all programming on Sunday, April 16, and Monday, April 17, with preference given for those planning to stay through the Congressional Lobby Day on Tuesday, April 18. Read more about the travel award, including requirements, and apply online by the Friday, February 3, deadline.
