Fund for the Future

The Foundation of the AAGL’s Fund for the Future (FFTF) provides scholarship funding for AAGL Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (FMIGS) programs to support the training of their MIGS fellows and offset their educational expenses.

The FFTF program was launched in 2011 as a partnership between the Foundation of the AAGL and industry thereby allowing industry partners to provide financial support to the AAGL Fellowships.

The FFTF program offers an online application that fellowship sites can use to apply for funding of their fellow(s). This program is only available to FMIGS sites, and not to individual fellows. If Fellows wish to receive funding through this program, they are to contact their fellowship site administrator and direct them to the FFTF website.

The Foundation of the AAGL Board has implemented the following guidelines for the Funds for the Future program:

  • Award winners are eligible to apply again three program years after receiving an award
  • An essay will be required with your application
  • Applications will be weighted based on the number of fellows in your program
  • Information submitted in the application process may be audited
  • Each FMIGS site is only eligible for one award per program year

 

The Foundation of the AAGL is pleased to offer two types of Fund for the Future Awards in the 2020-2021 program year:

Fund for the Future: for all FMIGS programs

Fund for the Future Robotics: for FMIGS programs specializing in robotics

Open Fund for the Future Robotics Application 2020-2021:

Applications are open and funding will be awarded to the two highest scoring AAGL FMIGS Programs, specializing in robotic surgery. Eligible FMIGS program sites are encouraged to apply. If your site was awarded a FFTF Robotics Award during the time period July 2017 – June 2020, you are not yet eligible to apply for the 2020-2021 FFTF Robotics Application. Your program will be eligible to apply again three program years after receiving your award.
