Family Medicine Interest Groups at all U.S. allopathic medical schools and branch campuses are eligible for a $600 grant from the AAFP and the AAFP Foundation to put toward their group's operation in whatever way they see fit. The purpose of the program is to provide crucial funding to FMIGs to work on the front lines at their colleges and enhance student interest in family medicine.

In order to qualify, FMIGs must:

All application materials (except the FMIG Activity Survey) must be mailed in one envelope to the following address:
