2014 Annual Meeting June 12 – 14, 2014 La Jolla, California
The Society for Vascular Medicine offers travel grant awards to promote the interest of younger vascular clinicians and other practitioners, and vascular researchers to attend the annual meeting. This is designed to facilitate participation for those experiencing financial hardship. The travel grants are supported by voluntary contributions from SVM members and corporate support. Funds to support travel have certain restrictions as to how they may be spent by the grant recipient.
1. To cultivate interest in the field of vascular medicine (and related vascular research)
2. To encourage trainees, clinicians and practitioners to increase their knowledge of vascular medicine
Application Deadline March 21
Winners Notified April 11
Meeting Begins June 12
Eligibility & Applications

Vascular Cures Wylie Scholar Program
Vascular Cures' Wylie Scholar Program provides financial assistance to outstanding surgeons at the early stage of their careers, to help them develop as academic vascular surgeon-scientists. Vascular Cures has advanced breakthrough research since 1982.
We've established a group of 16 surgeon-scientists at 13 institutions around the country who are transforming patient care. Vascular Cures' initial research investment of $8 million has enabled another $42 million in funding —producing $50 million for research.
The Wylie Scholar Program has created a network of talented academic surgeons, many of whom have become leaders in vascular surgery and research at major medical centers throughout North America. Vascular Cures will award each Wylie Scholar $50,000 per year for up to three years, subject to an annual review by the committee. As of 2013, the award is co-sponsored by the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS). The maximum award available for any Scholar is $150,000. Payment of awards will be made to the candidate’s institution, and the institution will be responsible for disbursing all funds and for the administration of the grant. Vascular Cures does not pay indirect costs.
The award may be used for, but is not limited to: teaching, basic or clinical research, community service, and patient care. Throughout the duration of the program, Wylie Scholars will periodically be evaluated by their respective Chief of Vascular Surgery and by Vascular Cures' Review Committee.
To be eligible for consideration, Wylie Scholar candidates must hold a full-time appointment at a medical school accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education in the United States or the Committee for the Accreditation of Canadian Medical Schools in Canada. Only one nomination per institution per year will be considered. The following conditions must be met:
The candidate must be in the last year of, or have in the preceding 5 years completed a Vascular Surgery Board of the American Board of Surgery or Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada approved Vascular Surgery training.
The candidate must present convincing evidence of rigorous research training and significant research accomplishments to date.
The candidate must prepare and present a challenging research plan to be completed during the term of the award.
The candidate must have a research mentor who will be an additional resource for his or her research.
The Chairman of the Department of Surgery must guarantee that the candidate will have 40% protected time available to devote to the research investigations.
The candidate is expected to participate in the Wylie Scholar award event each year during their research grant tenure. This includes participating in a scientific interchange with Vascular Cures Board of Directors and donors. Up to $1,800 of the annual stipend may be used for travel expenses and one night of lodging.
The Wylie Scholar Awards Committee of Vascular Cures will select the Scholar and present their recommendation to the Vascular Cures Board of Directors for final approval. The key criteria for selection of the potential Wylie Scholar will be a demonstrated aptitude for and interest in vascular research, skill and promise in vascular surgery, teaching ability, and leadership qualities. Selected candidates may be personally interviewed prior to the final selection.
Applications are due by April 4, 2014 and the Scholar is announced in June.

Each award consists of a US$3,000 student stipend and a two-year complimentary subscription to the Journal of Vascular Surgery.
The SVS Foundation grants a maximum of 12 awards per year. The Research and Education Committee is responsible for the selection of students to receive these awards.
Time period: The award is designed for students to spend a meaningful period of time on a project either in a block of several months or spread out over a longer period of time, not to exceed 12 months. The minimum full-time commitment is two months.
Work site: The awards are made to the institution (school, hospital, or research facility) where the student project will be conducted. The student must be enrolled in a university in Canada or the United States. The student must be sponsored by an Active Member of SVS.
SVS Member Sponsor Responsibility: The SVS Active Member who sponsors the student is expected to supervise the research project during the scholarship period. All scholarships are awarded with the understanding that the sponsoring SVS member accepts full responsibility for the project and the completion of a final report at the conclusion of the project. This responsibility also includes assisting with the experimental design designated in the application. An individual SVS member may sponsor only one student application per year.
Institution Responsibility: The entire US$3,000 award must be used as a student stipend. The institution receiving the award on behalf of the student must agree to distribute the award to the student and submit an expenditure report to the Research and Education Committee when payment of the stipend has occurred.
Final Report: A report (1,000-1,500 words) by the student and the sponsoring SVS member must be submitted to the Research and Education Committee at the completion of the project and before any other approved funds for other students sponsored by the SVS member are released.
Application materials must be submitted via email to the SVS Foundation Research and Education Committee (SVSFoundation@vascularsociety.org). Materials may be sent in separate emails to SVS Foundation. All applicants receive a confirmation email that their materials have been received.
