The American Medical Association Education and Research Foundation (AMA-ERF) is offering scholarships in clinical nutrition to third- and fourth-year medical students who have completed the required clerkships in medicine, surgery, pediatrics, and other fields.

The scholarship program consists of four- to sixweek clerkships in general, pediatric, and surgical nutrition offered by 21 medical schools across the country, throughout the year. A copy of the AMA-ERF Description of Clerkship Programs, 1982 for Scholarships in Clinical Nutrition is in the dean's office of all US medical schools.

Scholarships are only for students who do not have such clinical nutrition clerkships available at their own schools. Students accepted to the program will receive a $700 award to defray living and traveling costs.

Deadlines for applications are: Feb 1, 1982, for clerkships from June 1 to Nov 30, 1982, and Aug 1, 1982, for clerkships from Dec 1, 1982, to May 31, 1983. For
