The deadline to submit STSA Brooks Medical Student Scholarship and STSA Resident Scholarship applications is coming up on Wednesday, July 15, 2015. Medical students, general surgery residents, and cardiothoracic surgery residents training at an institution in the Southern region are invited to apply. Applications from students and residents training outside of the STSA region but who are nominated by an STSA member will also be considered.

Second, third, and fourth year medical students interested in pursuing a career in cardiothoracic surgery can apply for the James W. Brooks Medical Student Scholarship. This award is named for Jim Brooks, past president of the STSA and a great mentor to countless residents and students.

General surgery and cardiothoracic surgery residents pursuing a career in cardiothoracic surgery can apply for the Resident Scholarship.

Scholarship recipients will receive:

  • Round-trip, coach-class airfare to attend the 2015 STSA Annual Meeting in Lake Buena Vista, FL, November 5-8 and reimbursement for travel-related expenses;
  • A three-night hotel stay at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort;
  • A ticket to the President’s Mixer and Awards Dinner; and
  • An assigned STSA mentor to assist in planning a schedule of educational programming, answering questions, and facilitating introductions.

An interested applicant must complete an online application, as well as submit a current CV, a letter of nomination from an STSA member, and a letter of support from his or her medical institution dean or program director confirming permission for the applicant to travel to the meeting in Florida.

All application materials must be submitted to STSA by July 15. Applicants will be notified of the scholarship committee’s decision in early September. Contact STSA Headquarters with questions at stsa@stsa.org or 800.685.7872.
