A major focus of the TAFP Foundation the past few years has been building the Student Interest Endowment to fund scholarships for pre-clinical medical students who participate in the Texas Statewide Family Medicine Preceptorship Program. In 2014, the Foundation Board initiated a matching campaign to grow the endowment faster. Every dollar donated to the Student Interest Endowment through Dec. 31, 2015, will be matched with unrestricted funds until $100,000 has been matched.

The endowment was formed in 2012 with an audacious goal of raising $4 million, but the Foundation leadership knew they had to start awarding scholarships as soon as possible. Using unrestricted donations and scholarship endowments already established, 13 scholarships were awarded in 2013 to first-year medical students who spent two to four weeks of their summer with a family physician and another 19 were awarded in 2014. The Foundation plans to award 25 scholarships this year. Your help is needed to continue supporting the future of the specialty through this successful program. Donate today by mailing a check to the TAFP Foundation or call Kathy McCarthy at (512) 329-8666, ext. 114.
