As a tribute to the Rossnick family, the AOF named this grant in their honor. The late Julian Rossnick and his wife, Esther, named the AOF as a beneficiary of the Rossnick Trust to honor the memory of their daughter, Joni B. Rossnick, DO (1955-1992). The gift is the largest donation received in the AOF’s 60-year history. Depending on the number of grant requests received, the requested amount, and the content of the submitted information, some grant requests may not be approved or may be partially funded. The AOF reserves the right to limit the number of grants per individual or destination, and may reject one or more multiple grants for a single initiative/mission trip. Grants up to a maximum of $2.000 are available for osteopathic residents, osteopathic fellows and osteopathic medical students in the second through fourth year who best meet the eligibility criteria. Grants up to a maximum of $500 are available to first-year osteopathic medical students.
