2015-2016 Department Grant Funding Program

The Advocates for Upstate Medical University will begin accepting applications for grant funding on February 2, 2015. The deadline for submission is February 27, 2015 at 12 pm (noon).

Each year The Advocates allocate a portion of their financial resources to this program, which is intended to fulfill its mission: improve patient care and satisfaction, support medical education and enhance community health. We accept applications for grants from departments across the Upstate Medical University Campuses. A committee of Advocates reviews and determines which projects to fund. Successful applications are those that are in alignment with one or more of the three mission strategies stated above. These grants are not for individual scholarship funding but for departments and programs. They also will not fund dues, personal education and conventions, start up projects or parking. Money may only be spent for approved allocations.

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