SRS Educational Scholarship

Global Outreach Program (GOP) Educational Scholarship:

This scholarship is for individuals from a developing nation to attend either IMAST or the SRS Annual Meeting & Course. Recipients will be reimbursed up to $2,500 for travel and lodging. The meeting registration fee will be waived.

Who Is Eligible:

The Fellowship is open to candidates under 45 years old from developing countries. The recipient must be a qualified Orthopaedic or Neurosurgeon involved in spinal surgery. Candidates DO NOT have to be SRS members. Candidates who have attended a previous IMAST or SRS Annual Meeting are NOT eligible for this scholarship.

Since 2004, the committee has awarded 75 scholarships to surgeons from developing nations to learn new concepts and techniques to apply to their practice back home. Without this scholarship these surgeons would not have been able to attend the meeting and further their educations.

If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact the SRS office by phone (414) 289-9107 or by email.
