AAM Grant for Midwives of Color
AAM is excited to offer a biannual grant to be awarded to midwives and senior student midwives of color. The goal of this grant is to continue the advancement of midwifery in our midwifery community and communities of color by helping to overcome some of the barriers that exist. This grant intentionally relies on the applicant to identify their area of need.
Beginning 2018, at least one grant will be awarded each cycle of up $1,000 per recipient. This application process intentionally relies on the applicant to self-identify as a midwife or senior student midwife (Phase 3 or the equivalent thereof), and as a person of color.
Grants will be awarded twice yearly in March and September. Deadline for applications is February 28th for March awards, and August 31 for September awards. Grants will be awarded to those who meet the qualifications outlined above. If more requests are received than funds available, the available funds may be divided among the qualified applicants. Grant recipients are eligible to reapply for grant funds one calendar year after previous award.
This program will be reevaluated annually at the final AAM board meeting of the calendar year. Please pass this information on to others who may be interested!
