Our Work

The RJOS Scientific Committee oversees grant distribution. The committee works to provide grant opportunities to RJOS members in good standing. RJOS is proud of its historic commitment to providing grants and scholarships to RJOS members including our residents, medical students and practicing surgeons. Industry groups and individual donors fund our RJOS grants and scholarships, providing incredible research and education opportunities for our rising stars.
Grant applications will open in September 2023. Please visit the Grants & Scholarships page to view the grants and their deadlines. We welcome your application and research enthusiasm.
