Residents: Apply Today for the Bill Jermyn Advocacy Grant


POSTED IN: Featured Advocacy, Forum Topic,

The goal of this grant is to encourage Emergency Medicine Residents (must be a MOCEP member) to become active in the legislative activities of MOCEP and provide them with knowledge to advocate on behalf of Emergency Medicine in the future.

The grant will provide up to $1,000 per Emergency Medicine Residency program in Missouri to allow residents to attend the annual ACEP Leadership and Advocacy Conference (LAC) in Washington, D.C. Grant recipients will be responsible for costs above the allotted amount and for the registration fees. 

The total amount reimbursed to each resident will depend on the number of residents that apply and are selected for the grant. A total of $1,000 will be allotted per program. If a program only sends one resident the maximum amount awarded will be $500.

Grant recipients will be expected to write a short article about their experience at LAC for inclusion in the EPIC Newsletter following the conference.

To apply for grant funding, please complete the online application by December 15, 2019.
