Becker Medical Library, in partnership with the school of medicine’s educational programs, is proud to announce a new funding opportunity for student and trainee-led health and wellness initiatives. Students, post-docs, residents and fellows can now apply for modest grants through Becker Library’s Feuerstein Health and Wellness Information Center to help them actualize ideas to support their overall well-being. This can include initiatives that help individuals and their peers/classmates attend to any of the many elements that contribute to well-being including physical, emotional/spiritual, social, community or career related efforts. Examples might include, establishing a pantry program, purchasing CBT or relaxation apps, or sponsoring a recreational sport league. It is also reasonable to request funding to enhance existing initiatives or to expand their reach to other student/trainee groups.
For more information and to apply for funding, submit your idea through the application form.
