Scholarships

New Faculty Scholars Program

This program is designed to be a catalyst for developing future STFM and academic family medicine leaders. The program provides funding to send participants to the STFM Annual Spring Conference. These New Faculty Scholars must be STFM members who have served at least 2 years but no more than 4 years as full-time faculty and who exhibit outstanding leadership potential. Since its inception in 1988, this program has supported the attendance of 143 new faculty at this conference. Attendance at national meetings is one way to help develop leaders and leadership skills.

NEW! Dedicated Funding for Underrepresented in Medicine Faculty

Thanks to generous support from donors to the Underrepresented in Medicine Campaign, the STFM Foundation is able to provide additional mentoring and scholarship opportunities to contribute to a diverse family medicine workforce. This year, additional dedicated funding is available for underrepresented in medicine faculty applicants for the New Faculty Scholars Program. The Association of American Medical Colleges defines underrepresented in medicine as: “those racial and ethnic populations that are underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population.”
