Support for Surgical Technologists!
The Foundation for Surgical Technology is committed to help surgical technologists in meaningful ways.
- Our academic scholarships for surgical technologist students empower their careers.
- Our military scholarships help active duty and veteran surgical technologists attend AST's Surgical Technology Conference and earn continuing education credits.

- Our surgical technology educator awards program, the Constellation Awards, recognizes instructors at all stages of their careers.
Partners with the Profession
The Association of Surgical Technologists (AST) and the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA), jointly support and underwrite the Foundation's scholarships for surgical technologists.
Meet Our 2022 Scholarship Recipients
The Foundation announced this year's scholarship recipients as AST's surgical technology conference in New Orleans in June. Starting with the August edition of The Surgical Technologist, all students will be featured with their words on the profession and the future.
