Eligibility and information linked here

Each fellowship consists of a $3,000 award and a two-year complimentary subscription to the Journal of Vascular Surgery.

Successful applications are hypothesis-focused and achievable in the research period proposed. Projects supported by this award include basic science and translational research conducted by a vascular surgeon-scientist mentor as well as clinical research projects conducted under the auspices of a mentor experienced in clinical research.

The SVS member who sponsors the student is expected to supervise the research project during the scholarship period. All scholarships are awarded with the understanding that the sponsoring SVS member accepts full responsibility for the project and the completion of a final report at the conclusion of the project. This responsibility also includes assisting with the experimental design designated in the application. An individual SVS member may sponsor only one student application per year.  Residents and fellows may not sponsor a student.

The award is designed for students to spend a meaningful period of time on a project either in a block of several months or spread out over a longer period of time, not to exceed 12 months. The minimum full-time commitment is two months.
