Unfilled Position Grants

Grant awards for Unfilled Positions are to provide support for existing accredited residency programs to fill currently approved but unfilled first-year residency positions.

The grants are funded as part of a larger General Revenue appropriation of $7,375,000 in House Bill 1025. In December 2013, the Coordinating Board announced total awards of $3,250,000 for Unfilled Position Grants. Funding will support 25 Unfilled Positions in Fiscal Year 2014, the maximum allowed by statute, and provide those same positions with equivalent funding in Fiscal Year 2015, for a total of 50 positions supported over the two-year period. Statute mandates that each awarded residency position be funded at $65,000 per year.

The Coordinating Board may solicit additional applications for Unfilled Position Grants in late summer/early fall 2014. Contingent on available appropriations, grants may be awarded in early fiscal year 2015.
