Apply for VAM travel scholarships by May 19
By Beth Bales
Medical students and general surgery residents have until May 19 to apply for Society for Vascular Surgery Vascular Annual Meeting travel scholarships.
The scholarships are the SVS General Surgery Resident/Medical Student VAM Travel Scholarship and the SVS Diversity Medical Student VAM Travel Scholarship. Each provides not only a travel award to underwrite expenses to attend VAM, but also complimentary meeting registration, a mentorship program, and a dedicated educational and networking program.
Diversity scholarship winners also will participate in the Meet the Leaders Luncheon with members of the SVS Leadership Development and Resident and Student Outreach committees and mentors.
Students who live in the San Diego area will not receive the travel award portion of the scholarship. Students and residents may apply to each scholarship program but are eligible to receive only one award per year.
Priority will be given to those who have not previously received any type of SVS travel scholarship, are not presenting an abstract/poster at the meeting, and have not already matched into a vascular surgery training program. Scholarship notifications will occur in mid-June.
