American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Orthopaedics Global Outreach Mentored Scholarship Program
The AAP Section on Orthopaedics (SOOr) will offer awards of up to $1,500 to orthopaedic residents and pediatric orthopaedic fellows in the United States and Canada who are interested in providing musculoskeletal care to children in resource poor regions of the world (number awarded per cycle will be at the discretion of the review committee). The scholarship program will facilitate mentored experiences for young surgeons in training so that early in their career they have a unique, quality training experience abroad under the direction and supervision of a senior pediatric orthopaedic surgeon.
The goal of the Section’s Global Outreach Mentored Scholarship Program is to meld the principles and lessons learned during the experience abroad into future professional practice – and to understand the value of both providing care to those in need and mentoring future leaders.

Call for Applications: American Society for Bone and Mineral Research Harold M. Frost Young Investigator Award
Deadline: April 30, 2014
Harold Frost’s ideas transformed the face of skeletal biology and orthopedic science and he is regarded by many as being the most influential theoretician in skeletal biology of the 20th century. Harold Frost developed the process of quantitative bone histomorphometry, discovered the intermediary organization of bone and shed theoretical insights into the adaptation of bone to mechanical forces and hormones. In addition to Harold Frost's many scientific accomplishments, he was an active participant in the Sun Valley Workshop on Skeletal Tissue Biology, an annual meeting that emphasizes interaction between young investigators and senior investigators. His participation in the workshop influenced many young scientists. The award was established in Dr. Frost’s honor.
To be eligible, an applicant must be a 2 year post-doctoral fellow or resident with no more than 2 years as an Assistant Professor as of September 1, 2014. Note: ASBMR Harold M. Frost Young Investigator Awards are open to ASBMR members and nonmembers.
