Faculty for Tomorrow Resident Scholarship

The STFM Foundation supports multiple scholarships to cover registration expenses for residents to attend the full-day Faculty for Tomorrow Preconference Workshop at the STFM Annual Spring Conference. Scholarship recipients are chosen based on essays they have written to answer the questions "Why are you interested in teaching family medicine?" and "How do you think you can make a difference in the future of family medicine?"

The Faculty for Tomorrow Program is supported in part by a gift from Mary Nolan Hall, MD.

Dedicated Funding for Underrepresented in Medicine Residents

Thanks to generous support from donors to the Underrepresented in Medicine Campaign, the STFM Foundation is able to provide additional scholarships for underrepresented in medicine applicants. The Association of American Medical Colleges defines underrepresented in medicine as: “those racial and ethnic populations that are underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population.”
