The American Women’s Hospitals Service provides funding in support of programs that provide care, advancement and empowerment of women and children in underserved areas. We are devoted to fostering sustainable and innovative programs that will inspire individuals and make a difference for communities in need. In particular, we are looking to apply our funding to help full AMWA student, resident, and physician members who have a particular project or plan to help a community in need. Funds will be distributed on a annual basis and typically grants are no more than $500.
The information and documentation requested below will assist AWHS in determining whether or not the organization can support your project idea. Attach additional sheets in answer to questions where space is not provided. The completed application and supporting documentation must be forwarded to AWHS by the deadline (January 30th, September 5th). A decision will be made no later than 6 weeks following the deadline.
Grant awardees are encouraged to participate in the AWHS committee upon completion of their project to help mentor other AMWA members. We would also encourage and try to support attendance at the AMWA annual conference to present your work.
We are looking for members to work with a community to identify a particular need related to health care. This can be related to quality improvement, research to understand ongoing problems, or instituting vital services. This can be a community of particular racial/cultural identity, geographic location, or interest.
