Grant Funding Program

Now Accepting 2013–2014 Grant Funding Applications

Applications will be accepted from March 1, 2013 until the deadline: 12 pm noon on March 29, 2013. Due to continued departmental budget constraints, we anticipate a high volume of requests.

Each year The Advocates for Upstate Medical University set aside a portion of their proceeds to fulfill their mission of supporting Upstate Medical University. The grants are meant to improve and enhance patient care, support medical education and enhance community health initiatives. These grants are not for individual scholarship funding but for departments and programs.

All applicants will be notified of decisions made by the Grant Funding Committee prior to The Advocates’ Annual Meeting & Luncheon in May. Approved funds will be available June 1, 2013.


Application and guidelines are available on the following link or you may call Susan York, The Advocates’ Business Manager, at 464-5610.

All departments and programs affiliated with Upstate Medical University (all campuses) are eligible to apply.

Examples of grants currently awarded:

  • PHYSICAL MEDICINE REHAB: Enrichment & Community Re-Entry Programs
  • OASIS: Healthy Living NY
  • TRAUMA SERVICES: Helmet Education Day

We are proud to be able to support staff efforts to improve care and provide excellent patient education.
