Ashintosh Elective Grants
About the Grants
< The medical elective grant program is a new initiative of the Ashintosh Foundation and one which serves to give back to the medical student community which so strongly supports it by allowing select students to enrich another community through a medical project. Up to three grants of $1500 are available per year for health-related projects conducted on university elective placements. Examples of projects include supply of medical aid, conducting a research study or creating an educational program to assist healthcare in the region. Grants will be offered for a single project to be undertaken by an individual or group of applicants within the calendar year. New applications are necessary for expanding or continuing projects. Funding may be allocated to travel and administrative expenses in addition to the proposed project.
Priority areas for the foundation include projects conducted in Aboriginal, Torres Strait Island or developing world communities. This does not preclude other applications as innovative project ideas are welcome and encouraged.
Applicants must be enrolled in the University of Queensland MBBS or MD program when applying and undertaking their elective and project. Applicants must also be current members of the University of Queensland Medical Society.
