SMA COVID-19 Emergency Grants

The Society for Medical Anthropology (SMA) is accepting applications for the COVID-19 Emergency Grant Program!

The purpose of the program is to assist SMA members whose work has been financially disrupted by the pandemic. These disruptions include, but are not limited to, major loss of income due to changes in teaching schedules, research support, training opportunities, contract work, and graduate funding.  The SMA has created a fund from which they will make one-time $500 emergency grants that can be used to offset loss of income due to the pandemic and mitigation measures.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Be current SMA members who joined on or before February 15, 2020
  • Have experienced significant financial hardship due to COVID-19
  • Submit a complete application

The SMA COVID-19 Emergency Grant program has a rolling deadline; the application will remain open until all available funds have been expended.
