Another Reason to Support the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation

I recently received this from the Sjogren's Syndrome Foundation:

Medical or other graduate students in clinical and/or scientific research with a focus on Rheumatology are invited to apply for a Student Fellowship in Sjögren's. The award will be made  through the ACR Research Education Foundation (REF) Preceptorship Program and is supported by the Sjögren's Syndrome Foundation.

Applications for projects in Sjögren's may be uploaded to the ACR website between now and August 2, 2010, with the award to be given October 1, 2010. One SSF-sponsored award will be granted through the ACR REF program in 2010. The SSF will appoint a Sjögren's expert to join the ACR research review team in deciding on the 2010 recipient.

Projects must be completed in an 8-week program during one academic year. The award either will be made through the ACR REF/Abbott Medical Student Research Preceptorship or the ACR REF/Abbott Health Professional Graduate Student Research Preceptorship. For more information, visit the REF websites listed below:

Sjögren's Syndrome Foundation

Here's evidence of your donation dollars hard at work in the SSF to help educate new researchers in Sjogren's Syndrome and other rheumatological disorders. Can't think of a better way to spend the money.
