ELAINE A. STUEBNER SCHOLARS AWARD
All essays are due at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on Friday, December 15, 2017.
The ACOMS Stuebner Scholarship is an essay-based competition that awards one female board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon annually the opportunity to attend a continuing education meeting (organized by ACOMS) to advance their knowledge and skills. The intent is for the doctor to meet with mentors in the specialty and become involved in a lifelong learning process to stay well-informed and focused as a surgeon. The program aims to enable award recipients to become and remain engaged with other women in the specialty throughout their careers to learn, to mentor in-turn, and to perpetuate the cycle.
The program provides a scholarship award up to $5,000 in value which includes meeting registration, travel, and lodging at a scientific meeting organized by the College to take place within 365 days of winning the competition. The scholarship winner will also be awarded one year of complimentary membership in ACOMS. The winning essay will be published in the ACOMS Review newsletter and the essay writer must consent to having their submission published as a condition of receiving the award.
Participants competing for the scholarship should submit an essay addressing this question: If you had the opportunity to spend an hour with any female leader past or present, who would you choose and why?
Essays may not exceed 2,000 words and must be submitted no later than 11:59 p.m. EDT, December 15, 2017. Acceptable file types include but are not limited to .doc, .docx, PDF, etc.
A review committee comprised of distinguished members of the College will determine the winner.
