Montegut Scholarships to 2015 WONCA conferences
The Montegut Global Scholar Program (MGSP) was established by the American Board of Family Medicine Foundation (ABFM-F) in 2010. The MGSP will provide a USD2,250 scholarship for one family physician selected from each of the seven WONCA regions, to attend their respective regional WONCA meetings in 2015. If there is no meeting planned for a region in 2015 then it will be permissible for the nominee from that region to use the scholarship to attend a meeting in another region.
