Research scholarships for medical students available


January 14, 2016

The Infectious Diseases Society of America Education and Research Foundation has announced two scholarship opportunities for medical students. Applications are being taken now, with a deadline of Feb. 10.

These opportunities are for medical students to work with IDSA/HIV Medicine Associations members or fellows. The first is a scholarship opportunity for medical students to conduct independent research with an ID mentor. The second is an HIV-focused project and mentor relationship lasting up to three years. Both programs help support IDSA's efforts to promote the subspecialty of infectious diseases by attracting the top medical students to the field. 

Medical Scholars Program

Students in any year of medical school are eligible for this award. Scholarships of $2,000 are available. The scholarship activity must focus on pediatric or adult infectious diseases and may involve either clinical or research activities.

The program awards grants to medical student and mentor pairs to support a longitudinal HIV-related clinical learning and/or research project and mentor relationship during medical school.  To learn more or apply for the program, visit www.hivma.org/HIVMA_ Medical_Student_Program.aspx
