2017-2019 Scholars Research Grant

<< Return to awards page

The NESS Scholars Foundation has established the Scholars Research Grant, to advance innovative surgical research via multiyear support. The recipient of this grant will be awarded $10,000 in the initial year; the grant can then be renewed by review of the NESS Scholars Foundation Board of Directors for a succeeding year, for up to an additional $10,000.

Award
Following the review of applications by the NESS Scholars Foundation Board, the successful applicant will be notified and then awarded first-year funding of $10,000 in July 2017. An interim progress report is due to the NESS Scholars Foundation by May 31, 2018, so that second-year funding of $10,000 may be approved and provided in July 2018. Assuming approval of second-year funding, it is expected that the activities associated with the award will be completed by June 30, 2019, and that the awardee will both provide a final written report by July 31, 2019, and present an oral report at the time of the 2019 Annual Meeting of the NESS. The award is not to diminish or replace the customary, expected compensation or benefits; nor is any portion of the award to be used for institutional indirect costs.

Eligibility
NESS members in good standing who practice/reside within the New England States are eligible to apply.
