American College of Surgeons International Guest Scholarship 2020 – The American College of Surgeons is now accepting applications from young Surgeons for its 2020 International Guest Scholarships. The deadline for submission of applications for the American College of Surgeons International Guest Scholarship is July 1, 2019.

American College of Surgeons International Guest Scholarship.

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) offers International Guest Scholarships to young surgeons from countries other than the U.S. or Canada who have demonstrated strong interest in teaching and research. The scholarships, in the amount of $10,000 each, provide the scholars with an opportunity to take part in clinical, teaching, and research activities in the U.S. and Canada and to attend and participate fully in the educational opportunities and activities of the ACS Clinical Congress.

This scholarship endowment was originally provided through the legacy left to the College by Paul R. Hawley, MD, FACS(Hon), former College Director. More recently, gifts from the family of Abdol Islami, MD, FACS, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, and others to the International Guest Scholarship endowment have enabled the College to expand the number of scholarship awards.
