It’s that time of year again, when the American Osteopathic Foundation’s (AOF), the philanthropic arm of the AOA, grant, scholarship and award cycle opens. More than $78,000 will be awarded to osteopathic medical students for academic excellence; demonstrated leadership experience; noteworthy accomplishments; and a strong commitment to the principles of osteopathic medicine. Many of the opportunities also provide travel grants to attend OMED 2012, the AOA’s Osteopathic Medical Conference and Exposition in October, taking place in San Diego.
