    AAST Scholarships

    The mission of the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) is to serve as the premier scholarly organization for surgeons dedicated to the field of trauma and the care of critically ill surgical patients. 

    The AAST is dedicated to discovery, dissemination, implementation, and evaluation of knowledge related to acute care surgery (trauma, surgical critical care, and emergency general surgery) by fostering research, education, and professional development in an environment of fellowship and collegiality.

    A major goal of the AAST is to provide research scholarships each year to young investigators to further trauma research and scholarships for Medical Students, Residents and In-Training Fellows to attend the AAST Annual Meetings. Currently, all AAST scholarship applications are closed.

    Information regarding AAST scholarships for 2019 is coming soon.
