Minority Medical Student Awards and Scholarships


The American Psychiatric Association invites ethnic minority medical students who have an interest in psychiatric issues to apply for the 2012 Minority Medical Student Scholarships and Awards:


Travel Scholarships for Minority Medical Students

 Supports travel and related costs for approximately 10 minority medical students interested in psychiatry to attend either the APA annual meeting in May or the Institute on Psychiatric Services (IPS) meeting in October. This program is a terrific way for medical students to witness organized psychiatry at work and to learn more about the field. Not only will students attend sessions for experts and trainees alike, they will be assigned to a mentor who will help them maximize their annual meeting or IPS experience and discuss career plans and resident training programs. The IPS meeting application deadline is June 22, 2012.
