APSA Foundation Grants

The APSA Foundation (APSAF) offers a variety of grant opportunities to its members, and in some cases, other surgeon scientists sponsored by members.

James A. O’Neill, Jr. Global Pediatric Surgery Scholarship

APSA has a commitment to the surgical care of children worldwide. The Board of Governors of APSA and the Foundation have collaborated to establish a new Global Scholarship Program to promote the development of meaningful research approaches in resource-constrained environments. APSA and the Foundation are proud to offer this new opportunity for members to respond to the pediatric surgical needs of low- and middle-income countries.

Jay Grosfeld, MD Scholar Grant

The Foundation encourages the enrichment of pediatric surgeon scientists by providing support for projects which will broaden the horizon of the recipient in a fashion not otherwise readily achieved and for which funds may not be available from usual current sources. We welcome proposals for support of projects that encompass the humanities, medical ethics, education, clinical epidemiology, biostatistics, health care delivery, computer sciences, as well as clinical or laboratory research as they relate to the surgical sciences or to the delivery of pediatric surgical care and may include traveling fellowships or special scholarships.

Education Grant

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. 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.
