This is a new international award to promote an enriching and supportive climate that shines a spotlight on brilliant young shoulder and elbow surgeons and encourage the pursuit of academic excellence and involvement. This award is to be given out yearly to “young scholars,” defined as shoulder/elbow surgeons in their first (5) years of clinical practice or Shoulder & Elbow Fellows. This award was created to honor some of the young shoulder & elbow surgeons we have lost prematurely, including Doug Harryman, Alexandra “Sandy” Kirkley, Birgit Werner, and Dominik Meyer. Two awards will be given annually. The award will provide the recipient $1500.00 USD to assist with their attendance to a Shoulder and/or Elbow Meeting of their choice (National or International). One award will be specifically targeted each year to an under-represented group in shoulder / elbow surgery. This is an international award and is open to all nationalities.
Applications for this scholarship are due by June 1st, 2021. The application is available here.
