Not AvailableAdditional Information of Eligibility:
Eligible applicants include state governments and accredited schools of medicine except current EMSC award recipients with more than two EMSC grant awards. The term “school of medicine” for the purpose of this funding opportunity (and under 42 U.S.C.
300w-9(c)) has the same meaning as set forth in section 799B(1)(A) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C.
295p(1)(A)), i.e., “an accredited public or nonprofit private school in a state that provides training leading … to a degree of doctor of medicine.” The term “accredited” in this context has the same meaning as set forth in section 799B(1)(E) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C.
295p(1)(E)), which, when applied to a school of medicine, means “a school or program that is accredited by a recognized body or bodies approved for such purpose by the Secretary of Education, except that a new school or program that, by reason of an insufficient period of operation, is not, at the time of application for a grant or contract under this subchapter, eligible for accreditation by such a recognized body or bodies, shall be deemed accredited for purposes of this subchapter, if the Secretary of Education finds, after consultation with appropriate accreditation body or bodies, that there is reasonable assurance that the school or program will meet the accreditation standards of such body or bodies prior to the beginning of the academic year following the normal graduation date of the first entering class in such school or program.” Foreign entities are not eligible for HRSA awards unless the authorizing legislation specifically authorizes awards to foreign entities or the award is for research.
This exception does not extend to research training awards or construction of research facilities.
Per legislation, only three EMSC grant awards per state may be awarded to each state during any fiscal year.Full Opportunity Web Address:Contact:
