Student Interest Group Funding
University of Utah student members of a School of Medicine student interest group can apply for funding to help offset costs of attending a conference, completing a community project/activity, or hosting a campus event. The funding can be used to support any project, program, initiative, activity, or event that fosters, promotes, and embraces diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and safety, and improves the University of Utah School of Medicine climate.
The Office of Health Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (OHEDI) requires that funding proposals be made no less than one-month in advance before funding is needed. While the one-month lead time is internal, please be mindful of any other internal timelines of your sponsoring organization and the time that you will need to process things such as travel, set up contacts for services, etc. Medical school interest groups are eligible up to $2,000 in funding per year and funding is not guaranteed.
Should your request be funded, you will be required to submit an evaluation of your program, initiative, activity, or event within 30 days. If funds are provided to support professional development, the attendee (s) will be asked to provide an overview of the experience (and/or give a talk if applicable).
Please direct any questions to Donna Eldridge, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
