We’re pleased to announce that the 2012 AAMC Fee Assistance Program (FAP) application has opened. Students with financial need who are planning to register for the MCAT and/or submit an AMCAS application during the 2012 calendar year are encouraged to apply.
Applicants who are awarded fee assistance in the 2012 calendar year will receive the following:
• Reduced Registration Fee ($85 instead of $240)
• After your register for the MCAT using your FAP award, you’ll also receive a free copy of The Official Guide to the MCAT Exam ($30 value)
Regardless of how many FAP awards your receive, you will only receive the Official Guide with your first award. The guide will automatically be sent to you 2-3 weeks after using your award to register for the MCAT exam.
• Complimentary access to MSAR Online for one year from the date of activation ($15 value)
• Waiver for all AMCAS fees for up to 14 medical schools ($500+ value)
Please encourage your students to submit their FAP application well in advance of their intended MCAT testing date or AMCAS submission, since FAP benefits are not retroactive and cannot be applied to tests already scheduled or applications already submitted.
Visit the redesigned FAP web site for more information on eligibility and answers to frequently asked questions: www.aamc.org/fap.
If you have questions about FAP, please contact us at fap or 202-828-0600.
