Student Externship Matching Grants
Since 1992 the Student Externship Matching Grants program has partnered with 44 AFP Chapters and Chapter Foundations, and provided nearly $1 million in matching grants to support 765 student externships.
The goal of the Student Externship Matching Grant Program is to stimulate interest among medical students to select a career and/or pursue research opportunities in family medicine. Annual matching grants of $1,250 per externship are available to AAFP Constituent Chapters or Chapter Foundations.
