About Latin America Grants

About Latin America Grants

Latin America Grants are provided to eligible health professions schools, ministries, and other organizations in Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, or South America.

Through a regional health professions school consortia, the program promotes collaboration and provides grants to institutions focused on making a broad and sustainable impact on the quality of student assessment and program evaluation.

At the current time, NBME has not yet opened a call for the next cycle of Latin America Grants.  More details will follow.
