Travel/Conference Funding Opportunities

MAA Travel Funding Application - 

The Medical Alumni Association Board reviews completed student applications on a rolling basis. Following the board meeting, you will be notified whether or not you will receive funding and for what amount. Up to eight students per year can be selected; the reward is $100 for domestic travel and $500 for international travel. The MAA only provides travel funding for coach airfare and conference fees. Currently, the MAA prioritizes international travel. If appropriate, the MAA may forward a student’s application to other departments for consideration of other travel awards.

Student Fundraising Support and Yearbook Information

Each year, the MAA produces a yearbook for the graduating class that is designed by student editors. For further information, please contact Michael Downs.
