Each year the ACMG Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine supports the ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting with grants and sponsorships. However, because the demand for travel assistance and scholarships to attend the annual meeting continues to grow, for the first time in the ACMG Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine #8217;s history, we will offer meeting scholarships to promising graduate and medical students and medical genetics trainees (residents and fellows in either an ACGME or ABMG accredited program) whose young careers and future goals would be enhanced by attending the ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting.
These scholarships are made possible through generous donations from ACMG members and Dr. YT Chen (in honor of Dr. R. Rodney Howell, President of the ACMG Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine .
Through the 2011 Alice and YT Chen Scholarship Program, the ACMG Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine intends to encourage the next generation of medical genetics professionals to attend the ACMG Clinical Genetics Meeting and to become involved in ACMG activities early in their careers.
Scholarships will reimburse meeting registration fees and up to $1,000 in travel expenses. Scholarship awards must be used for the ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting for which they are awarded and cannot be deferred or used for any other purpose. Recipients will also receive a complementary, one-year membership in the American College of Medical of Genetics.
Qualifying applicants must be:
a graduate student,
a medical student,
a medical genetics fellow in either an ACGME or ABMG accredited program,
a medical genetics resident, or
a genetic counseling graduate student
Complete and submit the electronic application form, including a concise summary describing: (1) your accomplishments to date in medical genetics; (2) your career plans; (3) your interest in attending the ACMG Annual Clinical Genetics Meeting, (e.g. how you will benefit from attending); and (4) why you are applying for a scholarship.
