FIMRC Chapters help raise awareness about global health and provide amazing opportunities for volunteers to travel and serve. Traveling as a group can be a life-changing experience for our volunteers and for the communities we serve, and we are proud to offer scholarships to help even more volunteers travel abroad to serve with us. Some of our recent chapter groups received a scholarship award donated by a unique FIMRC leader & alum, John Park from Texas Tech.
