Apply Now

This scholarship is intended to cultivate future leaders among junior residents and international trainees in plastic surgery. Thanks to our sponsor, KLS Martin Group, nine resident scholarships of $1,400 each will be awarded to offset registration, travel and lodging costs to attend PSTM24, which will be held Sept. 26–29 in San Diego.

Training Program Directors may nominate one resident from their institution who they feel has demonstrated potential to be a future leader of ASPS/PSF. Please kindly note:

  1. Only one nomination will be accepted per institution.
  2. Only residents in the first four clinical years of an integrated program or the first year of an independent program, at the time of the meeting, may be nominated.
  3. Recipients must be resident subscribers of ASPS (subscription must remain active through PSTM).
  4. A letter of recommendation should be shared with the resident being nominated to include in their application.

Applications will be accepted through May 31 and scholarship recipients will be notified in early July. At the conclusion of PSTM24 the scholarship recipients will provide a report to summarize their experience.
