Through a generous grant provided by DJO Global, the AOAO Foundation is able to offer the following scholarship opportunities to AOAO resident members.

DonJoy Sports Medicine Research Scholarship
The AOAO Foundation Board selects the recipient from among the top scoring scientific research papers in sports medicine by June 1. The recipient must be a third or fourth year resident to be eligible.

This $1,000 scholarship is issued by the Foundation to the recipient’s medical school orthopaedic library, to be used by the library. The scholarship is paid to the library after the recipient has been named and the Foundation has supplied DJO Global with the name and NPI number of the recipient, along with the name of the medical school library.

Two Abstract Research Travel Scholarships
Abstract Deadline is June 1, then Residents and Fellows Committee reviews and scores abstracts. The AOAO Foundation Board reviews the recipients in July from among the top scored abstracts submitted to the Annual Meeting. Two recipients are named by August 1. Both recipients must be a second, third or fourth year resident.

Each recipient will receive a $2,000 scholarship to offset the cost of travel to the Annual Meeting for which the abstract was submitted. The scholarship will be disbursed after the Annual Meeting and receipts for travel to the meeting are received by the Foundation from the selected recipients.
