Unfilled Position Grants
In 2013, the 83rd Texas Legislature created the Unfilled Position Grants Program to increase the number of graduate medical education (GME) first-year positions in the state. The program provides support for existing, eligible residency programs to fill accreditor-approved but unfilled first-year positions. For Fiscal Year 2014, a maximum of 25 grants of $65,000 for each Unfilled Position will be awarded. Applicants that receive an award in Fiscal Year 2014 for one or more Unfilled Positions will receive an equivalent award in Fiscal Year 2015. The grants are intended to assist GME programs by providing money to pay for direct resident costs, including resident salaries, stipends and benefits. Eligible GME programs with Unfilled Positions must apply for grant awards no later than October 1, 2013. The Coordinating Board expects to determine the grant recipients by January 1, 2014.
