ACS/NESS Health Policy and Management Scholarship
The American College of Surgeons and the New England Surgical Society are once again offering an annual scholarship open to members in good standing of both organizations. Applicants must be at least 30 years old, but under 60, on the date that the completed application is filed. The scholarship supports attendance and participation in the Executive Leadership Program in Health Policy and Management at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. The course takes place June 4–10, 2017. The award is in the amount of $8,000, to be used toward the cost of tuition, travel, housing, and subsistence during the period of the course.
The closing date for receipt of applications is February 1, 2017. An awardee will be selected by a committee consisting of members of ACS and NESS. All applicants will be notified of the outcome of the selection process by early April 2017.
