The Surgical History Group (SHG) of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) announces an exciting initiative to support research in surgical history. A $2,000 stipend will be awarded to support research in surgical history that uses the archival resources of the ACS, which includes the records of the ACS in Chicago and the Orr Collection in Omaha. Funds are unrestricted, and can be used for travel, lodging, and other expenses associated with study in Chicago and Omaha.
The stipend is open to members of the ACS. Non-members are welcome to apply, with acceptance contingent on becoming a member of the ACS at an appropriate level (Fellow, Associate Fellow, Residents, Medical Students, and Affiliate Member).
Applications opened January 1 2018, with a March 1 deadline. A full application information can be found here: www.facs.org/about-acs/a
