The American College of Surgeons (ACS) Resident Research Scholarships encourage residents in surgery or a surgical specialty to pursue careers in academic surgery. The applicant must be a Resident member of the ACS who has completed two postdoctoral years in an accredited surgical training program at the time the scholarship is awarded (July 1, 2007), and shall not complete formal residency training before June 2009. Scholarships do not support research after completion of the chief residency year. Priority will be given to the projects of residents involved in full-time laboratory investigation. The scholar is expected to attend the Clinical Congress of the ACS in 2009 to present a report on the research as part of the Surgical Forum, and to receive a certificate at the Annual Business Meeting of Members.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, July 28, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to a two page summary of the proposed project and a two page biographical sketch.


$30,000 per year for two years
