Deadline March 31

The SVS Diversity and Inclusion Committee periodically awards training grants to female vascular surgeons. The purpose of the grant program is to develop strong women leaders in vascular surgery who will, over time, exhibit the outstanding accomplishments and exception personal qualities of those vascular surgeons recognized by SVS for their lifetime achievements: 

1.  Contributions to SVS or other vascular societies through leadership that has influenced professional practice and the quality of care. 

2. Contributions to vascular education through leadership and innovation in vascular training. 

3. Contributions to vascular basic science or clinical research through continued grant support or mentoring of other researchers. 

4. Special contributions to the field that may include: 

  • Contributions that elevate the national and/or international stature of the specialty of vascular surgery 
  • Regulatory, political, or governmental work that advances the specialty 
  • Pioneering technique or concept

Examples of leadership training opportunities include personal leadership coaching, traveling to meet women leaders, or specific training programs such as:

Selection Criteria

Three awards are given annually to women at various levels of experience: 
  • One award to a woman 0 – 5 years out of training 
  • One award to a woman 6 – 10 years out of training 
  • One award to a woman more than 10 years out of training. 
Applications that clearly describe how the grant will advance the leadership goals of the candidate and that include a clear action plan are given preference. 

Applicants must have completed training and be a current SVS member.

Application Procedure

  1. Complete an application form​​.
  2. Submit a letter of intent (two pages or less) that indicates how you would use the award to advance personal leadership training and specific career goals. The letter should describe what the recipient wants to accomplish, not just how the grant will be used.
  3. Provide a curriculum vitae.
  4. Include three complete publications (reprints or manuscripts.)
  5. Submit two letters of recommendation. One letter must be from the chair of the department in which an academic appointment is held; one letter from a colleague.
  6. All applications and related materials are due March 31.

Supporting materials must be emailed to vascular@vascularsociety.org, or faxed to 312-334-2320.

For questions, telephone 312-334-2301 or email vascular@vascularsociety.org

Recipient’s Report to Committee

Within twelve months of completing the Women's Leadership Training Grant program, the recipient will prepare and forward a report to the SVS Diversity and Inclusion Committee. The report should be one to two double-spaced typewritten pages and should summarize activities during the leadership training period. Although factual statements of activities should be included, recipients are encouraged to place these within an overall context of the impact on professional and personal development. 

Recipients may be invited to present their leadership experience at the Leadership Roundtable during the Vascular Annual Meeting.

Any publication of the leadership training activities should acknowledge W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. and the SVS Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
