The President's Emergency Fund
Emergency grants were instituted in November 2005 to support curators affected by Hurricane Katrina; fourteen grants were disbursed. Emergency grants are made to curators, both members and non-members, who find themselves in financial need through extraordinary circumstances. Grants are given at the president's and board's discretion and do not involve an application process. Please click here to make a donation to the Emergency Fund.
The AAMC has developed a professional development grant program for curators with limited travel funds. The grants may be used for purposes of traveling to the annual meeting or other professional development programs of benefit to curators. Curators of all ranks are eligible, as long as they are AAMC members in good standing. The AAMC has established several initiatives aimed at the retention and professional development.
