Awards & Grants

JEMF Student Manuscript Award

The Jane Engelberg Memorial Fellowship (JEMF) Advisory Group will award $500 for the best manuscript from a genetic counseling student-led research project previously submitted to the JEMF Advisory Group for funding.  The JEMF Advisory Group will provide up to one (1) student manuscript award per year (Jan – Dec). The purpose of the award is to promote the continued professional development of genetic counseling students and recent graduates and improve the practice of genetic counseling by rewarding high-quality dissemination of scholarly work.
