The Southern Association for Vascular Surgery (SAVS) has announced a deadline extension to Dec. 5 for 20 travel scholarships that are available to medical students and general surgery residents to attend the 2023 SAVS annual meeting (Jan. 18–21).
Half of the 20 $1,000 grants for the gathering in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico—partially funded by W.L. Gore through the Association of Program Directors in Vascular Surgery (APDVS)—are reserved for women and underrepresented minorities.
To qualify, applicants must be either a medical student (years 1–3) or a general surgery resident (PGY 1–3) interested in vascular surgery and able to attend the meeting from Wednesday, Jan. 18, through Saturday, Jan. 21, according to SAVS.
“As the purpose of these scholarships is to increase interest in vascular surgery, students and residents already applying for training positions are not eligible,” the association notes.
The travel scholarships include complimentary registration for the meeting alongside the $1,000 award for travel reimbursement.
