Applicant Information

The Florida Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ (FCAAP) Florida Pediatric Foundation (FPF) is offering six scholarships for residents enrolled in a Florida pediatric residency program to attend the AAP Advocacy Conference, being held virtually March 20 – 22, 2022! The FPF 2022 scholarship includes registration and a gift card to purchase food during the conference. You must be a resident member of FCAAP to apply.

What are the expectations?
Winners must register for the conference by Sunday, February 20, 2022.

The AAP will schedule meetings for attendees with their Representatives and Senators, which the scholarship winners are expected to attend. Applicants are also expected to identify an advocacy partner in their local area or institution who they anticipate partnering with for future advocacy efforts. Examples of advocacy partners include, but are certainly not limited to, AAP Chapters, state/local governmental organizations (eg, health departments), disability and family advocacy organizations (eg, Family Voices), or academic institutions or programs/centers within those institutions (eg, LEND programs).

Each winner will be paired with a member of the FCAAP leadership team for support before, during, and after the conference. Scholarship recipients will be expected to share their experience within 3 months (eg, writing an article for the FCAAP News or hosting a presentation within their community with a copy to be sent to FCAAP). Applications will be judged on the candidate’s commitment to further advocacy efforts beyond the Advocacy Conference. Applicants who describe a plan with their local partners or with FCAAP for active collaborations after the conference will be given priority.

Interested in applying?
Complete and submit this application by 5:00pm ET on Friday, February 4th. Scholarship awardees will be notified via email no later than Friday, February 18th.
