The American College of Surgeons (ACS) is offering scholarships to subsidize attendance and participation in the Executive Leadership Program in Health Policy and Management at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University, Waltham, MA. The 2014 course will take place June 8–14, and the closing date for receipt of all application materials is February 3, 2014. The $8,000 award must be used toward the cost of tuition, travel, housing, and subsistence during participation in the course and the post-course follow-up period.
The ACS fully funds two scholarships, reserved for general surgeons, and has partnered with several surgical organizations to cosponsor a scholarship for a member in good standing of both the College and their specialty society. (See sidebar for list of participating specialty societies.) All applicants will be notified of the outcome of the selection process by March 31, 2014.
