|AAPS Resident Travel Award
The American Association of Plastic Surgeons will recognize a plastic surgery resident with a $1500 scholarship to cover travel, housing, and registration to attend the AAPS Annual Meeting, May 2-5, 2020, Palmer House Hotel Chicago, Illinois.
Residents in an ACGME and RCPSC approved Plastic Surgery Residency Training Program will be eligible to apply for the Scholarship by completing an application to include a personal statement, CV, and letter of support from their Program Director confirming that the person will be able to attend the entire annual meeting, and a statement that the person's attendance at the meeting would NOT be otherwise supported (e.g. the local institution would be covering expenses for presentation/attendance).
Applications will be reviewed by the Committee for Scientific Program Awards and the scholarship recipient will be selected each year based on interests in plastic surgery, productivity, and leadership.
The scholarship recipient will be notified by February 1 of each year and recognized at the annual meeting.
Scholarship recipients are required to attend all of the scientific sessions.
Recipients will submit appropriate receipts for transportation, lodging, and registration within 10 days after the meeting.
Application will be available Fall 2019.
