The AMWA Student Division needs your support! You can help by making a tax-deductible contribution to fund activities that directly benefit women in medical school. Your donations provide support for a number of AMWA Student Division projects including local, regional, and national events, as well as various medical student scholarships, grants, and awards. Click here to donate now, or read on for more information.
Donations support the Annual Student Meeting, in addition to the production of the AMWA Student Newsflash, our monthly publication that provides students with a wealth of information about national and local events, grant and scholarships opportunities, and additional member benefits.
In addition, your support helps fund educational and networking events that are organized by AMWA student members at the regional and local levels throughout the United States and the Caribbean. Donations further support student financial grants for travel to AMWA's Annual Meeting and for transportation to medically underserved areas for international medical school rotations. Finally, your donations support need-based financial scholarships for female medical students, as well as academic and leadership awards.
All of these programs and scholarships require funding to operate and to succeed, and the programs mentioned are just the beginning! We have so many more ideas and plans for providing assistance to female medical students and for promoting educational events focused on the health needs of women. But we need your help to accomplish these goals! Donate today and help the future female physicians of tomorrow.

General fund donations provide support where most needed at that time, whether for general operating expenses, funding our annual meeting, or providing support for scholarships and awards. Alternatively, you can specify that your donation is intended to support us in a particular area of your choosing, such as to fund need-based student scholarships, student travel grants or fee waivers for our national meeting, student leadership awards, global health fellowships, or our annual student research poster competition. The various fellowships, awards and grants that we sponsor can be viewed on our Student Awards and Scholarship page. Simply e-mail us if you have specific instructions about how you would like your donation used and we will happily honor your request.
Please help us help women and donate today! Your generous support is greatly appreciated by AMWA Student Members as we work to further the interests of female medical students, the future physicians of tomorrow.
