AMSSM LOCAL HUMANITARIAN SERVICE PROJECT GRANT

The AMSSM and AMSSM Foundation introduced a new program in 2016 allowing AMSSM members to apply for funding to conduct local service projects. Five $2,000 grants were awarded for projects completed around the country in the summer of 2016 in the inaugural year of this program. Through the generous support of AMSSM, the AMSSM Foundation and the Halpern Family Fund we are continuing the program for 2017. We will once again offer five $2,000 grants for AMSSM members to conduct a one day project relevant to the field of sports medicine, reaching out to underserved members of their local communities. In order to also encourage making these projects endure, previous winners are also eligible to apply for the grant funding.

Interested AMSSM members are asked to fill out a grant application to request funding for their project. In 2016, funded projects included a certification program for coaches on CPR/AED/First Aid; provision of 'health living' backpacks to children as a federally funded health center clinic opening; pre-participation physicals and health screening at an inner city in-school health clinic; building of facilities for a local youth sports program; and coordination of an event for disabled athletes. Creativity and originality are encouraged by members in developing their projects but the goal of giving back to our local communities should be at the forefront of any project to be considered. We encourage as many local AMSSM members to be involved as possible. Projects are expected to be completed in the summer of 2017.

Grant proposals are reviewed based on several criteria including originality, meeting the goals of helping underserved individuals, the inclusion of AMSSM members, how well the project reflects AMSSM goals, project feasibility, and having a complete and appropriate budget for the event.

Applications for the grant are available online now with the deadline for submission of proposals being March 10, 2017. Winners of the grants will be notified prior to the 2017 Annual Meeting in San Diego and a formal announcement will be made during the meeting.

Further questions applicants may have regarding the project can be sent to Jody Gold.
