ACS-COSECSA Application Details 2023

Applications are open for the ACS-COSECSA Women Scholars Programme 2023. Current data indicate that there are only 0.5 surgeons for every 100,000 people. Although women make up more than 50 percent of the population, they represent only 7 percent of the surgical work force.

To help address this problem, the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the College of Surgeons of East, Central, and Southern Africa (COSECSA) have developed a scholarship programme to support women in surgical residency, help them complete their training, and encourage other women in medicine to consider surgery as a profession.

This scholarship is supported by a generous donation from Pon Satitpunwaycha, MD, FACS, the American College of Surgeons Foundation, and the Hellman Grant through the Association of Women Surgeons Foundation.


  • Each scholarship is worth $2,500. The number of awards will depend on the quality of applications and available funds.
