Awards, Scholarships and Grants
During your four years at the School of Medicine, you may become interested in doing projects outside the curriculum, participating in an away opportunity, or pursuing a particular interest. Regardless of the type of experience, these intiatives cost money.
To help you finance these opportunities, the Office of Student Affairs compiled a list of grants, scholarships, and awards to provide some assistance or even help shape the project you may want to do.
We recommend that you use this list in conjunction with the summer opportunities database to see if there are any opportunities of interest to which you can apply these funding sources.
Other public health opportunities for medical students can be found here. This site is provided by the American Public Health Assembly and lists many opportunities for awards, grants, fellowships, and more.
For more information contact the Office of Student Affairs at (212) 263-6088.
