The ACEP section grant program was established to assist sections with meeting members’ needs, educating the public, and advancing emergency medicine. Section members are invited to submit grant proposals that help meet their section’s objectives. It is a great way to work together with support from the College. The Board of Directors awards up to $50,000 annually to section grant applicants. The following is a list of recently completed projects funded by the section grant program.
