Consider applying to the ECG Travel Grant Program!

Due to a generous grant from the Atran Foundation, ECG is a new branch of Mount Sinai’s student-run free clinic, the East Harlem Health Outreach Program (EHHOP). ECG (EHHOP Consulting Group) serves to help other medical schools jumpstart their own student-run clinics through scholarship, consulting, and advocacy work. Part of the mission statement of ECG is to provide the opportunity for the leadership of new and upcoming student clinics to attend the annual Society for Student-Run Free Clinic Conference.

The grant amount is up to $500 per student and will apply towards your travel, hotel, food and registration.

The application opens October 15, 2017 and closes October 31, 2017. Scholarship recipients will be notified in December 2017.
