Trauma Research Scholarship
The Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST) Trauma Research Scholarship is a research scholarship initially offered May 1, 2001. The scholarship amount is $40,000 for one (1) year only and is currently funded through a grant from EAST.
The 2024 scholarship deadline for receipt of Letters of Intent was May 12, 2023. Following receipt of the Letters of Intent, the Research-Scholarship Committee along with the Research Division Chair will judge the Letters of Intent on the basis of the merit of their research proposals, the potential of the applicant of future contributions to the science and practice of the surgery of trauma, and the applicant’s mentor support and dedication of the research proposal. The top-ranked Letters of Intent will be invited to submit full proposals by July 20, 2023. The Research-Scholarship Committee and Research Division Chair will review full proposals in August 2023 and select the final awardee.
For official rules and regulations for this scholarship please refer here.
After the scholarship cycle concludes the recipient will be expected to provide an up to date use of funds from their institution’s accounting department. At this time the recipient/institution will be asked to either a) submit a request for a non-financial extension (no cost extension) for one additional year or b) return any unused funds back to the Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST).
Note: All Letter of Intent submissions will be blinded prior to being reviewed and scored. Applicants should not include names, institutions, or identifying information within their actual proposal submission provided that they should remain anonymous.
