Giving Tuesday is a national campaign occurring on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, as a way to begin the giving season and contribute charitable donations to nonprofits. This year #GivingTuesday falls on December 3rd!
We are celebrating YOU today, our generous donors, for the extraordinary experiences that your gifts make possible.
Meet William Kim, a second year medical student from the University of Colorado:
"Thank you so much for the travel scholarship to the IPS conference! I had an amazing time connecting with other medical students and psychiatrists and learning from experts in the field. One of my favorite moments was the scholarship luncheon where I was able to learn about the APA's efforts in supporting minority groups. I felt honored to have been awarded the scholarship to attend.
While at IPS, I thought a lot about my family. My dad is a taxi driver back in LA and my mom sews clothes from home. I’m the first person in my family to attend college and medical school, and I felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude for the privilege to be there. Thank you to the APA Foundation for removing barriers for students like me.
Looking ahead, I hope to find LGBTQIA mentors who also identify as part of this community. I am also conducting research on adverse childhood experience scores at my university pediatric psychiatry clinic and hope to present one day at a conference. Thank you so much once again for this opportunity!"
Travel awards that help inspire and sustain the psychiatric workforce of the future are just one of the many things that donors like you make possible.
