Student Subsidy

The AMEN board generously offers a subsidy to currently enrolled medical and dental students (& their spouse) to attend the AMEN annual conference in Indian Wells, CA October 29 – November 1, 2020.  The board is committed to mentoring young physicians and dentists so they can begin their careers not only as medical professionals but as true medical evangelists right from the beginning.

Requirements

AMEN’s goal is to teach you how to become medical evangelists.  We are confident that you will respect the board’s generosity by attending the meetings while at the AMEN conference.  However, due to past no shows and last minute cancellations that cost AMEN thousands of dollars, you must do the following in order to qualify for the subsidy:

  1. Be a currently enrolled medical/dental student at an accredited medical/dental school.
  2. Be committed to medical evangelism and the mission of AMEN and the Seventh-day Adventist church.
  3. Be/become an AMEN member. Join AMEN now (Student membership is only $25 and it lasts the entire time you’re in school!).
  4. Apply for the student subsidy – this is done during the registration process by selecting the student subsidy category.  You will be fully registered (including lodging and meals) once the application is approved.
  5. Apply by Sunday October 4, 2020.
  6. Pay a REFUNDABLE $100 deposit. You will be refunded UNLESS you do not show up or if you cancel AFTER October 18, 2020. Your refundable $100 deposit may be made via PayPal during the application process OR by mailing a check to:
    AMEN
    PO Box 398
    Weed, CA 96094-0398 
    Please write STUDENT ATTENDEE DEPOSIT on the memo line of the check so your check will not be cashed.  Checks will be destroyed and PayPal deposits refunded by November 13, 2020 UNLESS you do not show up or if you cancel AFTER October 18, 2020.
