Travel Stipend

The leadership of the Southern California Chapter of the ACS is committed to encouraging participation by young surgeons in the annual Chapter meeting. Travel stipends to help defray travel and registration costs to future local or national ACS meetings worth $1,200 are available from the Southern California Chapter. Three young surgeons* will be chosen to receive the travel stipends after submitting an application for consideration and registering to attend the 2022 SCCACS Chapter meeting. The winners will be announced at the Young Surgeons’ Breakfast on Saturday, January 15, 2022 and you must be present to receive the award.

We know that as young surgeons just starting a career, it can be difficult and costly to take time off to go to meetings and become involved in Chapter activities. We encourage you to apply for the generous travel stipend provided by your local ACS chapter by December 22, 2021 and attend a breakfast especially for you.

*Note: Applicants must be practicing surgeons—the travel stipend is not intended for Research Fellows or Residents.

The deadline for submission is 5:00 pm PST Wednesday, December 22, 2021.
