ALMA is particularly interested in projects that focus on connection to community, identity and expression or mental health.

Projects in other areas will also be considered and projects must be nationally applicable.

The selection panel will be looking for relevance to lesbian and bisexual women’s health, relevance to the key themes, quality of research or methodology and design, feasibility of budget and timeframe, and evidence of research or educational experience or supervision.

Overseas members of the ALMA may also submit applications to be considered.

ALMA began in 1999 and offers support and mentoring for lesbian doctors, medical students and their partners.

Over 200 doctors and medical students in many different fields of medicine from all over Australia are members of the group.

Applications for the 2018 grants are due no later than Friday, December 14, and should be sent to gail.ruth@bigpond.com.
