T. Franklin Williams Scholars Program

Through strong partnerships with specialty societies and the generous commitment of the Atlantic Philanthropies (USA) Inc., and support of The John A. Hartford Foundation, ASP developed a research award program to build a workforce prepared to care for the growing population of older individuals. Designed for specialists in the early years of their first faculty appointment, ASP partners with 12 internal medicine specialty societies to offer the Williams awards in 12 specialties, including general internal medicine. Since 2003, the T. Franklin Williams Scholars Program has supported more than 100 awards to internal medicine junior faculty specialists.

The T. Franklin Williams Scholars program support for funding professional development plan ended in 2015.  AAIM encourages GEMSSTAR appplicants to contact the specialty society relevant to your research to receive information on other funding opportunties to support a professional development plan.
