American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery International Travel Grant
The American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery’s purpose of existence is to promote, encourage, foster and advance the art and science of microsurgical and other complex reconstructions. To do this the organization has established a forum for teaching, research and free discussion of reconstructive microsurgical methods and principles. Yearly, the ASRM holds a scientific annual meeting which has a longstanding tradition of presenting cutting edge topics in microsurgery, panel discussions, and instructional courses applicable to the clinician as well as the researcher.
The organization is continually aware of the financial hardship that has affected several surgeons in underdeveloped countries and believes that it is part of their obligation to microneurovascular surgery to not make it prohibitive for these individual’s to continue their education in this ever growing specialty. This initiative is important in our world society and global health.
The American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery is offering an opportunity to surgeons from underdeveloped countries that are experiencing financial hardship. The grant covers three nights lodging at the host hotel in addition to the ASRM Annual Meeting general registration fee. It will be up to the recipient to cover the additional expenses including transportation.
Applications Due: October 15th
Godina Traveling Fellowship
Marko Godina was a visionary reconstructive microsurgeon, an insightful and enthusiastic teacher, and a remarkable man. Despite his abbreviated career, tragically cut short at the age of 43, he led the way for a generation of microsurgeons in understanding the care and treatment of complex extremity injuries through early reconstructive microsurgery. The American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery knows no better way to honor the memory of Marko than through an ongoing investment into promising, upcoming, committed surgeons, who will, through study and investigation, continue to expand the horizons of our field. In this regard, the Godina Traveling Fellow has been established to allow a deserving individual, chosen by the ASRM to travel among numerous microsurgical centers, including Ljubljana, Marko's home.
The Godina Traveling Fellow will:
Receive a stipend to use towards travel expenses, room and board. The expense cap for the Godina Fellowship is set by the Executive Council yearly.
The Godina Traveling Fellow must include Ljubljana, Slovenia, Marko's home institution, in their travels.
It is strongly suggested that non-North American fellows visit American institutions in addition to the required visit to Ljubljana.
The Godina Traveling Fellow will be chosen prior to the ASRM Annual Meeting at which he/she is appointed, and opens their traveling year.
The Godina Traveling Fellowship will begin at an ASRM Annual Meeting and will conclude at the subsequent annual meeting, at which time, the fellow will deliver the annual Godina Lecture.
The applicant must submit at least three letters of recommendation from members of the ASRM or the World Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery who can attest to the candidate's character and achievements.
Applicants must be members of the ASRM.
Successful completion of a surgical residency and/or fellowship leading to the acquisition of competency in reconstructive microsurgery (i.e. plastic surgery, orthopaedic surgery, general surgery, otolaryngology, hand and/or microsurgical fellowship.)
A candidate's age at the time of appointment should reflect the spirit of Godina's youth.

American Cancer Society International Fellowships for Beginning Investigators
The objectives of this 12 month ACSBI fellowship, of a value of USD 50,000, are to foster a bi-directional flow of research knowledge, experience, expertise and innovation between countries and to advance the academic career development of beginning cancer investigators through clinical, behavioural and basic research projects.
