2021 ADIUM Student Elective Travel Grant

May 31, 2021

The ADIUM Student Elective Travel Grant was established in 2000 to help AMA medical student members defray the high costs of attending medical school in Alberta. The grant is sponsored by ADIUM Insurance Services Inc., AMA’s wholly owned insurance agency. Each year 20 $500 grants are randomly drawn (10 for each school) from entries received by students.

In any other year at this time, 20 medical students (selected by random draw from entries received) would be receiving notice that they'd been awarded the ADIUM Student Elective Travel Grant. In 2020, however, no one was permitted to travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so with input from the AMA Committee on Student Affairs, this year ADIUM randomly selected the following 20 AMA student members from the classes of 2021 and 2022 to receive the grants:
