About the CFMSThe CFMS is an organization representing over 8,000 medical students from 15 Canadian medical student societies from coast to coast. We represent medical students to the public, to the federal government, and to national and international medical organizations.
The CFMS is excited to announce that we have up to $10 000 available for our MedSocs to apply to in order to support your community care initiatives to support Canadians during the COVID-19 pandemic response. We have been so impressed and inspired by your work and leadership during this time. Initiatives can request up to $1000 in funding support. The deadline to submit these will be Friday April 3rd at 5:00pm EST and decisions will be communicated by April 6th.
Ideally each CFMS medical school member school can submit an overarching application for the initiatives taking place at their school. Your medical school executives have been informed of this and may work to coordinate this.
Funds can be used to support any community care initiatives including local innovations (i.e. 3D printing of PPE, mobile mental health supports for seniors etc.) and to support student involvement and commitment.
