American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Scholarships, Fellowships, and Awards

We currently offer a wealth of surgical research and travel scholarships and fellowships for Fellows, international surgeons, Associate Fellows, and Resident members. These programs offer intriguing opportunities for you to sharpen your skills.

ACS scholarships are funded by the generous donations of Fellows, Chapters, and friends of the College. Membership in the College is an eligibility requirement for all the opportunities for domestic (U.S. and Canada) surgeons. International opportunities do not require ACS membership; even so, more than 50 percent of awardees become International Fellows.

We invite you to find out more about how the College can help you advance your surgical career through one of these exciting programs. Please contact the Scholarships Administrator at to request a list of all ACS Scholars, Fellows, and Awardees.
