The Lebanese Medical Association for Sexual Health LebMASH calls on students in any medical field who are interested in sexual health and LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) health to apply for the annual "Break the Sielnce" grant.

Every year, LebMASH offers students an opportunity to win full sponsorship to attend an international medical conference.

To win this grant, students compete by submitting a review-of-literature or research paper about sexual health or health of sexual minorities in Lebanon.

The winner is awarded 1500 USD to cover their transportation and accomodation. LebMASH partners with GLMA's annual conference to waive the conference registration fee for the winner.

Students are expected to bring back to their schools and peers what they learned abroad. They are encouraged to present their experience and to also publish it online.
