Fund for the Future

The Foundation of the AAGL’s Funds for the Future (FFTF) is a grant program created to provide funding for fellows participating in the Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery (FMIGS) program.

The FFTF program was launched in 2011, to allow industry to provide financial support to the AAGL Fellowships to help offset educational expenses for Fellows at FMIGS sites.

The FFTF program offers an online application that fellowship sites can use to apply for funding of a fellow. 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 web site.

The Foundation of the AAGL Board has implemented the following changes to the Funds for the Future program beginning in 2019:

    • Award winners are eligible to apply again after three years of being awarded
    • An essay will be required with your application
    • Applications will be weighted based on number of fellows in program
    • Information submitted in the application process may be audited

 

Deadlines:

Applications Open:  August 1, 2019
Applications Due:  August 23, 2019
Awards Announced:  September 27, 2019
