American Academy of Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery Diversity Endowment URM Away Rotation Grant
Deadline: May 14, 2018
The American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery Diversity and Inclusion Committee would like to help introduce medical students from under-represented minorities (URM) to the field of otolaryngology. Two grant winners will be selected. The winners will select a program from the list of participating programs to apply for an away rotation. They will receive $1000 to use towards travel, housing or food during their away rotation.
To be eligible, the medical student must be scheduled to graduate at the end of the 2018-2019 school year, and be a member of an underrepresented minority group. Underrepresented minority is defined by the AMA and AAMC as “those racial and ethnic populations that are underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population”. This includes traditionally defined underrepresented minority groups, African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Native Americans (American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians), and mainland Puerto Ricans, in addition to other minority groups, such as Pacific Islanders from Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia.
