To be eligible for this award, applicants must be physicians, dentists, or nurses who:
- are from historically disadvantaged backgrounds;
- are U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or individuals granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) status by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services; and
- are completing or have completed their formal clinical training. (We will give preference to those who have recently completed their formal clinical training or—in the case of nurses—their research doctorate.)
Physicians must be Board-eligible to apply for this program. A dental applicant must be a general dentist with a master’s degree or a PhD or has completed advanced dental education. Nurse applicants must be registered nurses with a research doctorate in nursing or a related discipline completed by the application deadline.
 The term “historically disadvantaged” refers to the challenges facing individuals because of their race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or similar factors (e.g., possession of a physical, learning, or other disability; first generation college graduate).
 Applicants who are permanent residents and not green card holders should contact the Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program before applying to determine whether they can satisfy the program’s eligibility and documentation requirements.
