APSA Foundation Education Grant

Background. Although historically the Foundation has given support to Grosfeld surgeon scholars, due to increasing interest from APSA membership and in line with its mission, APSAF has created a funding opportunity for educational projects.

Definition. An educational project is a discrete activity that will provide members of APSA (surgeons in training, actively practicing surgeons, advanced practice providers) an opportunity to expand their core surgical knowledge and improve their skills and training.

Proposal. The goal of the project should address one or more of the priorities of APSA according to its mission.
  • Develop/advocate for standards of care for infants/children while influencing public policy regarding surgical care of infants/children
  • Encourage discovery/innovation/improvement of patient care
  • Provide methods of disseminating knowledge regarding surgical care of infants/children
  • Offer high quality continuing education for pediatric surgeons
  • Create identity and community among pediatric surgeons
  • Promote a supportive health care environment for children, families, ancillary staff, and pediatric surgeons sustained by economic health

Past Education Grant Recipients

The inaugural grant was awarded in 2022 to support the Peer Support program, a support service for members who have experienced an adverse event or other stressor that could benefit from talking with a pediatric surgeon trained in supporting others. The grant funds were used to train APSA peer supporters for 1:1 sessions. Visit the Peer Support Program page to learn more.
