International Surgeon Travel Grant

The International Surgeon Travel Grant offers an opportunity to surgeons from underdeveloped countries that are experiencing financial hardship, to not make it prohibitive for these individual’s to continue their education in this ever growing specialty. This initiative is important in our world society and global health.

The grant covers three nights lodging at the host hotel in addition to the ASRM Annual Meeting registration fee. The recipient is required to submit an article to the ASRM newsletter "Reconstructive Microsurgery" sharing the impact the meeting had on them professionally. Grant recipients will be paired up with a mentor to meet during the annual meeting to further discuss the challenges faced today in ones practice.

Applicants must submit a completed application, letter of recommendation, current CV, and a personal statement addressing your interest, current employment status and type of practice, what it means to you to get this grant and what you intend to gain professionally from the meeting what issues you are facing in your practice and who you would like to be mentored by on this issue. All applications must be received by November 1st. Email application form to:
