IDSA Ebola Grants Still Available
IDSA’s Center for Global Health Policy is offering service grants for IDSA members volunteering in West Africa to contain the spread of the Ebola outbreak.

Each grant of $2,500 is meant to offset some of the costs volunteers incur by attending the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) training course or traveling to West Africa, as well as providing a small amount toward income lost while volunteering.

Applicants must provide verification of attendance at the CDC training and of affiliation with a governmental or non-governmental organization (NGO) coordinating the volunteer effort such as USAID, Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) or Partners in Health.

Since the November announcement of the availability of the grants, 10 have met all eligibility requirements for receiving a grant, leaving 30 grants available. Additional applicants are in the process of applying to volunteering programs in West Africa.
