Student Support Funding Information 

We encourage you to first check with your school's department of family medicine to ask if they can help with travel and registration support.  Only students enrolled in U.S. medical schools located in the Midwest states of Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin are eligible for Family Medicine Midwest Foundation support funding.    

University of Wisconsin students should use their school's Brillman Funds Form and not submit an application here.

Family Medicine Midwest (FMM) is committed to attracting, retaining, and developing outstanding family physicians in the Midwest. We recognize that systems of oppression caused harm in historically marginalized communities, including but not limited to indigenous peoples and their occupied lands, communities of color, LGBTQ+ communities, people of varying abilities and body sizes, immigrant communities and others historically excluded from medicine. These systems of oppression are embedded in our public health, health care, and medical education systems in which family physicians live and work. We are dedicated to attracting, retaining, and developing outstanding family physicians for the future to provide the most equitable and comprehensive care for all.

If you have any questions about student funding, please call Ginnie Flynn at 773-754-1185 or email [email protected].
