Medical Student Travel Grant

The American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery’s purpose of existence is to promote, encourage, foster, and advance the art and science of microsurgery and complex reconstruction.  To do this the organization has established a forum for teaching, research and free discussion of reconstructive microsurgical methods and principles. Yearly, the ASRM holds a scientific annual meeting which has a longstanding tradition of presenting cutting edge topics in microsurgery, panel discussions and instructional courses applicable to the clinician as well as the researcher. 

The American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery is committed to investing in the future of microsurgery.  Therefore, the ASRM has implemented a scholarship program to assist medical students that want to attend the annual meeting.  To qualify applicants must:

  • Be a medical student at the time of the annual meeting

The scholarship covers three nights lodging at the host hotel and $500 towards travel expenses. There is no registration fee charge for medical students to attend the ASRM Annual Meeting.  Additional expenses are the responsibility of the student or institution.
