DICE Student Groups and Funding

Starting academic year 2021-22, the DICE Office will fund core student groups $1000 per year of discretionary funding. Core student groups need to submit an organization budget (including outside sources of funding, signed by the executive board) by May 1 for the upcoming academic year budget. These funds can include conference funding for any students not (or no longer) eligible for URM student conference funding, on-campus events, and student life activities.

Core and affiliated student groups can apply for funds from DICE’s programming budget for on-campus professional development and educational events. The application for these funds is due 1 month in advance of the event, and approval of the event will depend on the content, its alignment with DICE Office’s goals and values, and remaining funding in DICE’s programming budget for the academic year.

Core Student Groups are defined as active student affinity groups that represent students who have an underrepresented and/or minoritized experience in medicine.

  • These groups currently consist of:
    • Allies of Women in Medicine
    • ANAMS (Association of Native American Medical Students)
    • APAMSA (Asian Pacific American Medical Student Association)
    • LMSA (Latino Medical Student Association)
    • QMD
    • SNMA (Student National Medical Association)

To remain core student groups, organizations must host a minimum of 2 on-campus cultural, educational, and/or professional development events per academic year, open and promoted to the broader Geisel community.

Affiliated Student Groups are defined as student groups that align with DICE Office goals and values, but do not meet the above criteria as a core student group. Affiliated student groups receive support and mentorship from the DICE office, and they can apply for funds from DICE’s programming budget. However, they do not receive yearly discretionary funding from DICE.

  • These groups are required to check in annually, at minimum, with the DICE Office regarding their group’s plans for the academic year.

Community Engagement Health Scholar Groups are defined as student groups that are dedicated to community engagement. Community engagement health scholar groups receive support and mentorship from the DICE office. Their funding is uniquely determined by need, external funding, and the positive impact to the Geisel community.

  • These groups currently consist of:
    • Rural Health Scholars
    • Global Health Scholars
    • Urban Health Scholars
