American Psychiatric Foundation Invites Medical Students to Apply for Mental Health Service Project Funding
Deadline: May 26, 2009

The American Psychiatric Foundation’s Helping Hands Grant Program provides grants of up to $5,000 to medical schools to support mental health service projects that are created and managed by medical students, particularly in underserved minority communities.

The program was established to encourage medical students to participate in community service activities, raise awareness of mental illness and the importance of early recognition of illness, and build an interest among medical students in psychiatry and working in underserved communities. Student projects can be conducted in partnership with community agencies or in conjunction with ongoing medical school outreach activities.

Medical schools are eligible to apply for the grants. All student projects must be conducted under medical faculty supervision. Medical students must be in their second, third, or fourth year of medical school to participate.

The application deadline has been extended to May 26, 2009.

Visit the foundation’s Web site for the program brochure and an application form.
