Scholarship Description

The American College of Surgeons offers International Guest Scholarships to young surgeons from countries other than the United States or Canada who have demonstrated strong interests in teaching and research.

The scholarships provide the Scholars with an opportunity to visit clinical, teaching, and research activities in North America and to attend and participate fully in the educational opportunities and activities of the American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress.

  • Applicants must be at least 35 years old, but under 45, on the date that the completed application is filed.
  • Applicants must submit their applications from their intended permanent location. Applications will be accepted for processing only when the applicants have been in surgical practice, teaching, or research for a minimum of one year at their intended permanent location, following completion of all formal training (including fellowships and scholarships).
  • Applicants must have demonstrated a commitment to teaching and/or research in accordance with the standards of the applicant’s country.
  • Early careerists are deemed more suitable than those who are serving in senior academic appointments.

Preference may be given to applicants who have not already experienced training or surgical fellowships in North America.

An unsuccessful applicant may reapply only twice and only by completing and submitting a current application form provided by the College, together with new supporting documentation.

Eligible groups

Assistance will be provided in arranging visits, following the Clinical Congress, to various clinics and universities of their choice.

The deadline date for receipt of applications is July 1 every year.


In order to qualify for consideration by the selection committee, all of the requirements must be fulfilled.
