Each funding cycle the AAFP Foundation awards approximately 24 matching grants. Those who apply earlier have a better chance of receiving more than one matching grant.
The AAFP Foundation allocates Student Externship Matching Grant Awards sequentially, based upon the date and time that each application is received. First, one matching grant will be awarded to all applicants, if possible. Then, if additional funds are available, a second matching grant will be awarded based upon the sequence of submissions and whether more than one matching grant was requested. This process continues until all matching grant funding for the cycle has been awarded.
Recipients will receive a Notice of Award, via email, in April.
