Student Initiative Grant Recipients – Fall 2019

The MMSA Student Initiative Grants (SIG) program was developed to ensure that Manitoba medical students have the opportunity to obtain funding for their innovative projects and initiatives. Applications are evaluated on their enhancement of the experience of Manitoba medical students, enhancement of the local, provincial, and national community, as well as the level of planning evident in their proposal.

We received numerous applications highlighting the ideas of our students, and are happy to announce the grant recipients of our Fall 2019 cycle:

Indigenous Resilience Night: Franciz Diaz, Emilie Anderson-Gregoire

Stem Cell Club: Youstina Soliman, Lisa Kim

Community Partnership – Societies for Disabilities: Sandhini Lockman, Elvina Muham

Safe Sex and Sexual Health Counselling: Jacqueline Donner, Tori McConnell

Medicine Collegial Learning Society: Karam Al-Bayati


Thank you to all of our applicants! We look forward to seeing what you will accomplish in the future!

The next application deadline is in March 2020.
