In Maryland, Acupuncture Funding Abounds

2 federal grants were awarded to the University of Maryland's Center for Integrative Medicine. The first, nearly $6 million, grant establishes a Center of Excellence for Arthritis and Traditional Chinese Medicine Research at the University of Maryland. The second grant, for almost $4 million, establishes an International Center for Research on Complementary and Alternative Medicine. The grants are funding a total of 6 studies on osteoarthritis, low back pain, irritable bowel and greater data on their clinic's efficacy.

The Tai Sophia Institute, a 5 Element School in MD, has received a $1 million gift from the Helen M. & Annetta Himmelfarb Foundation. Administrators say the money will be used as a challenge grant to secure additional funding.

Are there any scholarships/grants for students to directly apply for?
