The Central Surgical Association Foundation offers two annual awards, the Enrichment Award* and the Turcotte Award, each in the amount of $20,000, to support surgical scholarship and research as well as to advance the science of surgery. Applications for 2021 will become available in the Fall of 2020.

The mission of the Central Surgical Association Foundation (CSAF) is to enrich the discipline of surgery and the surgical careers of members of the Central Surgical Association. This goal is achieved by supporting grant proposals that will broaden the horizon of surgery and surgeons including the support of projects that may not be funded from other sources. The CSAF welcomes proposals for support of a wide spectrum of projects including surgical ethics, education, epidemiology, biostatistics, health care delivery, and computer science, as well as traditional, clinical, or laboratory research.

Who Should Apply?
The applicant or the principal investigator must be a member in good standing of the Central Surgical Association. The applicant will need to explain how the CSA member is directly involved in the research. Special consideration will be given to member applicants who are junior faculty at the Assistant Professor level who have not yet obtained federal funding (K, R series NIH or equivalent DoD funding) to support early career development and to serve as seed money to obtain these grants in the future. All research proposals must have IRB approval (or documentation of exemption) at the time of submission.
