The DMSS helps Dalhousie’s medical students with worthwhile projects by providing monetary assistance. Any student can apply for project funding by filling out an electronic application. There are two rounds of applications, one in the Fall and the other in the Winter semester. Deadlines for applying vary from year-to-year. While all projects are considered for funding by the Finance Committee, the DMSS looks for projects that have tangible goals. A project can involve a local, grassroots effort to combat homelessness or can be part of an international global health initiative; you can check out some of our present and past initiatives in the Student Life section of this web site.
In order to apply for official Returning Interest Group (IG) status, the Executives of the Returning IG must submit a completed Dalhousie Medical Students’ Society (DMSS) IG application form to the Student Interest Group Committee (SIGC) by September 23 or February 21 for the fall and winter funding cycles, respectively.
Electronic copies of this application must be received by September 23, 2016 at 11:59pm. Applications received after this date will not be considered. Please note that receipts must be submitted no later than two (2) weeks following an IG event to the DMSS VP Finance. Exceptions will be granted only under exceptional circumstances. Successful applicants will be expected to acknowledge the source of funding (e.g. DMSS, DMAA, corporate sponsors) in promotional material for the project.
Additional photos and a description of events held by your group are to be forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org for use on our website and publications soliciting alumni donations.
