The Student Projects for Health competition recognizes students who have made outstanding contributions to projects that successfully promote community health and well-being. Launched in 2015, the competition is supported by GEMx and FAIMER as part of the annual conference of The Network: Towards Unity for Health (TUFH). It is open to all undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in any course of study who have been participating in such projects. Representatives of approximately 15 projects receive sponsorship to attend the conference each year. Sponsorship includes air travel, hotel accommodation, and conference registration fee.

Applications for the 2018 Student Projects for Health competition are now open. The 2018 Network: TUFH conference, co-hosted by the University of Limerick, will be held August 16-20, 2018, in Limerick, Ireland. The theme of the conference is Community Empowerment for Health: A Multi-Sector Approach. Winners will be invited to attend the conference and present posters about their projects.

Applications will be considered by a distinguished group of international reviewers with a wide variety of expertise in health professions education. Detailed information on selection criteria can be found here.
