I believe the CAA and the VT Association have offered scholarships to students going into medicine. It would be great if we could raise money for a scholarship for medical students. It would require an essay about ME/CFS as part of the application. Students researching available medical scholarships would likely read about it, and later perhaps a press release could be sent to the local newspaper in the area where the winner lives. Perhaps awards or scholarship awards could be given at state, national, or international science fairs for high school students entering outstanding science projects pertaining to ME/CFS or XMRV. The awards presentations usually attract a large audience--at least at the state level. I'm remembering from my children's science fair days that the military and various corporations gave special awards. A nonprofit could possibly do the same. Sorry, I did not mean to start a new thread. I meant to put this in the "Think Outside the Box" thread.
