General Surgery Resident/Medical Student Travel Scholarship 

Diversity Medical Student Travel Scholarship 

SVS is dedicated to recruiting medical students and general surgery residents to the specialty to ensure the best young medical professionals become vascular surgeons. SVS offers travel scholarships to aspiring vascular surgeons to underwrite expenses for attendance at the Vascular Annual Meeting.
