NMF is a non-profit organization that provides grants-in-aid for first and second year students judged by NMF to be in need of financial assistance. NMF adheres to the AAMC definition that underrepresented minorities in medicine are “those racial and ethnic populations that are underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population.” NMF awards give preference to these populations, with specific attention to African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and Asian Americans.
