Application deadline: Oct. 1, 2019, 11:59 p.m. ET

The AAMC Nurturing Experiences for Tomorrow’s Community Leaders (NEXT) Award provides funding to develop or enhance a learning opportunity for students and trainees that addresses local community health needs. Proposed projects must target medical students or residents, or both. We also encourage the inclusion of interprofessional learners.

Successful applicants will propose projects that seek to improve community health and eliminate health disparities while applying population health leadership principles and promoting collaboration among diverse stakeholders across the clinical, education, and research missions.

The AAMC expects to issue four awards to accredited U.S. AAMC-member institutions, each of which will receive $8,500 to support the proposed project.
