International Resident Scholarship Application

Application Guidelines:

  • Both members and non-members may apply. Preference will be given to current AANA member. The applicant has to be a minimum of PGY 3 in 2018 to qualify.
  • The scholarship is awarded for one course and three nights lodging at the Hampton Inn Rosemont (room and taxes only), and acceptance of it requires commitment to attend the specified APEx Course they received the scholarship for the 2018 calendar year only. The scholarship provides up to $2,100 per recipient.
  • Application for these scholarships may be submitted for multiple courses, but will only receive a scholarship for one course per year. If the recipient is offered a scholarship, it is the responsibility of the recipient to contact the AANA office to confirm their status for the course. The Learning Center Committee reserves the right to review all incoming applications and has the right to adjust accordingly.
  • The AANA Education Foundation International Resident Scholarship process requires that you write a one page essay of 300 words or less and a letter of recommendation to be considered for an award. The Arthroscopy Association of North America encourages diversity of applicants and institutions; only in exceptional circumstances will more than one scholarship be granted in a single year to applicants from the same institution.
  • The closing date for receipt of completed applications and all supporting documents for the January and February 2018 courses is December 15, 2017.
  • The closing date for receipt of completed applications for our December 2018 course is June 15, 2018. If sent after the closing date your application will not be accepted.
