The National Institute for Medical Assistant Advancement Awarded $300,000 Grant from The Colorado Health Foundation

Denver, Colo., March 11, 2024: The National Institute for Medical Assistant Advancement (NIMAA) is pleased to announce it has received a grant of $300,000 from The Colorado Health Foundation.

This grant, awarded to cover a three-year period, will support NIMAA’s goal of increasing enrollment in Colorado, where the national organization is based. This includes providing $5,000 scholarships to 30 students over the life of the grant.

The award will allow NIMAA to create an emergency safety-net fund for students who may experience hardships and challenges during their training and to establish an alumni ambassador group that will provide guidance and mentorship to current students.

In addition, it will allow for the development of a partnership with T-Mobile Education and Premier Wireless to provide laptops and high-speed data plans to students who have limited access to technology.

According to NIMAA Executive Director John Ephraim Butt, “We are delighted and honored to be selected for this generous grant by The Colorado Health Foundation. The Foundation has been an outstanding source of support for NIMAA since our founding in Colorado in 2017, and in many ways responsible for our growth and ability to help expand the health care workforce in the state.”
