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. 

The deadline to apply for student support funding was August 31. The total number of funding awards offered and the amount provided to each student is entirely determined by the funding received each year.  If there is funding remaining, the form will be reopened here after September 8.

Applicants will be notified via e-mail and must accept and agree to the terms of the support funding listed below, or decline. All students who are offered funding will be required to register online by September 14.  All students are subject to the conference cancellation policy. No refunds will be issued nor funds provided for "no-shows" or cancellations made after the conference cancellation deadline. 

In order to receive funding support, a student must agree to all these requirements. 

  • Register online before September 14
  • Arrive and check in at the conference no later than 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 30. 
  • Attend at least one plenary and education session and submit the session evaluations 
  • Attend the Residency Fair and meet with at least one residency program. 
  • Attend at least two of the conference days (Friday, Saturday, Sunday morning)
  • Students will receive their support by reimbursement after meeting all obligations onsite and submitting the conference evaluation via the meeting app.  

Failure to attend the conference will result in forfeiture of your registration fee with the only exceptions being for cancelled flights.  Other exceptions are limited to COVID positive tests or other exceptions considered on an individual basis with documentation. 

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.
