The American College of Surgeons (ACS) announces the availability of a scholarship for surgeons serving small communities: the Nizar N. Oweida, MD, FACS, Scholarship of the American College of Surgeons.
This program provides up to three awards of $5,000 each to subsidize the participation of a Fellow or Associate Fellow serving a small community. Awardees will either attend Clinical Congress or may propose a plan for additional training or research appropriate to a rural surgeon.
The Oweida Scholarship is available to an ACS member in any surgical specialty who meets the following requirements:
An open call for applications will begin in January. The closing date for receipt of completed applications and all supporting documents is March 15.
Additional documents and questions are to be directed to the Scholarships Administrator: email@example.com or Scholarships Administrator, American College of Surgeons, 633 N. Saint Clair St., Chicago, IL 60611-3295.
Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic current award recipients were unable to attend the Clinical Congress and therefore the award was deferred until the 2022 Clinical Congress. The Nizar N. Oweida Scholarship will not be accepting applications until January 2023.
