2019-2021 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 USD 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 USD.

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 USD in July 2019. An interim progress report is due to the NESS Scholars Foundation by May 31, 2020, so that second-year funding of 10,000 USD may be approved and provided in July 2020. Assuming approval of second-year funding, it is expected that the activities associated with the award will be completed by June 30, 2021, and that the awardee will both provide a final written report by July 31, 2021, and present an oral report at the time of the 2021 Annual Meeting of the NESS, September 23 - 25, 2021, at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, Connecticut. 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.

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