Purpose

The Helping Hands Grant Program provides funding to medical schools for mental health and substance use disorder projects that are created and managed by medical students, particularly in underserved minority communities.

Projects should be designed to encourage medical students to participate in community service activities, particularly those focused on underserved populations; raise awareness of mental illness and the importance of early recognition of illness; and build an interest amongst medical students in psychiatry and working in underserved communities.

Eligibility

Medical schools are eligible to apply for the grants. All projects must be conducted under the supervision of medical faculty, consisting of at least one physician.

Medical students who participate in the program must be in their second, third or fourth year of medical school at the time they are engaged in community service.
