Funding for Research at Home and Abroad
The Alpert Medical School has a limited pool of funds to help support students attending national and international academic conferences either to present scholarly work or to represent AMS in a leadership capacity. AMS may be able to reimburse students for reasonable (coach) travel and lodging expenses, and conference registration fees. Please understand that this funding is limited. We encourage students to budget wisely and consider cost-sharing measures, such as sharing hotel rooms, when possible.
In order ensure the greatest amount of equity possible across a large student body, an individual student will only be eligible for two financial awards (starting FY2018) in any given fiscal year (conference date July 1 through June 30). Any additional awards will be made at the discretion of the Associate Dean, Allan Tunkel. For any given poster or oral presentation, AMS can only fund a maximum of two student presenters.

Emerging Scholars in Family Planning
The Society of Family Planning Research Fund and the Society of Family Planning promote programs and grants that center diversity, equity, and inclusion and contribute to the academic success, retention, and persistence of emerging scholars from all backgrounds. SFP/SFPRF strives to actively build a community whose members have diverse cultures, backgrounds, and life experiences. To that end, the society is accepting applications for its Emerging Scholars in Family Planning program. Through the program, grants of up to $7,500 will be awarded in support of efforts to diversify the pipeline of family planning scholars and provide more opportunities for integrating emerging scholars into the family planning community. Grants also will underwrite attendance at the 2018 North American Forum on Family Planning, support the publication of one open-access publication, cover SFP membership dues for 2018, and facilitate efforts to match scholars lacking internal institutional or mentor support with an external mentor.
