III. Service Grant Program

The purpose of the SNMA Community Service Grant Program is to encourage local chapters to develop student-initiated service projects. By providing financial assistance to our chapters, this program aims to increase participation in community service across the nation. Chapter projects should comply with the mission of the SNMA and should ideally seek to fulfill the National Health Education & Disease Prevention and Pipeline Programs Service Protocols. Any chartered SNMA chapter is eligible to apply. Two (2) chapters will be selected as recipients of a monetary award to aid their efforts.

*The 2017 - 2018 Service Grant Application cycle has ended. The 2018 - 2019 Service Grant Application information will be made available in August 2018.

IV. October National Founders Month of Service

The Community Service Committee would like to thank all SNMA members and non-members along with the many alumni, past and present officers and executive board members who helped to make this year's October Month of Service 2017 a success!

V. Join our Committee

The National Community Service Committee plays a large role in the programmatic aspect of the SNMA. As a result, we are always looking for "extra-hands" to assist us in our goals. Our goals include: assisting in the implementation and publicity of the SNMA's community service protocols and community service outreach efforts, overseeing accurate tracking and documentation of protocols and other projects, and working with and supervising the efforts of individual protocol/initiative coordinators. If you feel as though you can contribute to helping us achieve our goals, please click on the "Join this Committee" icon above to take the first step in becoming an active member of the Community Service team.
