Caring for Community Grant Program Offers Support for Medical Student Service Projects
Deadline: March 29, 2004

The Association of American Medical Colleges (<a href=""></a>), with the support of Pfizer, Inc. and the Pfizer Medical Humanities Initiative, is conducting an institutional grant program to encourage the development of student-initiated services and programs to the community.

As part of the Caring for Community Grant Program, medical schools are eligible to receive support for community service-oriented projects in which they explore new ways to serve their local communities. Eligible programs may range from those that promote awareness about sexually transmitted diseases, to vaccination and literacy programs, to any program that fulfills an unmet need within the community. Grant awards will also be offered to eligible service programs that are currently under way. The AAMC will present up to ten grant awards annually.

The focus of the program is on projects initiated, developed, and run primarily by medical students. While faculty and institutional involvement is integral to sustaining community service efforts, the ultimate goal of the program is to encourage students to identify untapped avenues of community service and to help them translate their ideas into meaningful service by contributing needed start-up funds.

See the AAMC Web site for complete program requirements, application materials, and information on previous grant recipients.
