Foundation News, including Scholars Research Grant
The purpose of the New England Surgical Scholars Foundation is to provide educational and research support for the NESS. During the past year, Dr. Catherine A. Schneider was appointed as the Vermont representative on the Board of Directors, while Dr. Artlet G. Kurkchubasche was re-appointed as President and Dr. David McAneny was elected as Secretary-Treasurer.
During fiscal year 2018, members contributed $23,125 to the Foundation, which includes $550 to the unrestricted Centennial Fund that was established to honor the NESS’ 100th Anniversary. The organization has a number of financial obligations that have increased over time, and ongoing donations from the NESS membership are needed. Cumulative contributions are listed in the annual meeting program booklet, and members who have contributed since last year’s meeting are further recognized by an assembly ribbon and by on-site signage.
The Foundation continues to fund 2 concurrent Scholars Research grants—one a first-year grant ($10,000), and the other a second-year grant ($10,000)—which are meant to advance innovative surgical research via multiyear support. Applications for the 2019-2021 Scholars Research Grant are now being accepted through the deadline of May 31, 2019.
