APMSA Education & Service Grants

APMSA 2020-2021 Education & Service Grants
Now Available

The APMSA Service and Education grants are made available for program/projects, not individuals that are executed from September 1, 2020 - June 30, 2021 and are not retroactive for past events. Grants may not be used for speaker honorariums. Grants are available in part due to the generosity of the APMSA Partners who strongly support the APMSA’s efforts to promote and further educate podiatric medical students and the general public about podiatric medicine.  
There are two different types of grants available: 
Education Grants:  Programs or projects that enhance the overall educational experience at a podiatric college for the benefit of the student body and/or educate the surrounding local communities understanding and importance of good foot care and the role of a podiatrist.  Examples of education initiatives are: practice management, research, diabetes or wound care seminars, health fairs, or foot health awareness month.
Service Grants:  Activities or programs that provide a service to the school’s local community or organization by delivering goods or services to improve foot health and to emphasize the role of a podiatrist in the delivery of foot care. Examples of service initiatives are:  foot screenings, walkathons, health fairs, or “Shoes for the Homeless”.
