Helping Hands Grants FAQs

How does the Awards process work?
Upon selection, in August, the primary medical student author and the Project Administrator will be notified by USPS mail and will include a contract to be signed and returned. If the Foundation does not hear back from you within four weeks, your grant fund may be forfeited. Grant checks will be mailed upon receipt of the signed contract.

How do I apply for the Helping Hands Grant Program?
Be sure to follow the application instructions above and submit one original copy of a completed application packet by mail or by email as a PDF. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Please contact Lilia Coffin via email, lcoffin@psych.org with any questions regarding the application.
