MOCEP Research Grant


Bill Jermyn MOCEP Advocacy Grant

The goal of this grant is to encourage Emergency Medicine Residents 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. MOCEP will use awarded funds to help underwrite attendees travel costs and expenses for grant recipients.  The resident awardee is responsible for the registration fees.  

MOCEP will assign and cover the cost of housing (attendees will share rooms).  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 this grant, please complete the online application by Jan. 31, 2017.


MOCEP Student Advocacy Grant

MOCEP encourages medical students interested in the emergency medicine specialty to get involved during medical school. For this reason, a grant has been developed to help students learn about activities and advocacy efforts of MOCEP and its leadership.

MOCEP will select one medical student each year and provide them $300 to attend the ACEP Leadership Advocacy Conference (LAC) in Washington, D.C. In order to qualify for this grant, the student must attend the MOCEP Advocacy Day and commit to attend the LAC. The grant can be used to pay for registration for LAC and travel to and from LAC (expenses above $300 are the responsibility of the recipient). MOCEP will assist students in finding overnight accommodations with residents or board members also attending on behalf of the association. The grant funds will be provided as a reimbursement so the selected student will need to submit receipts after the event to receive the funds.

The selected student will also be asked to submit a short article about their experience at LAC for inclusion in the EPIC newsletter.

To apply for grant funding, please complete the online application by Jan. 15, 2017.
