One Year Medical Student Research Fellowships
The Medical School encourages many students to consider a fifth year and devote it exclusively to research. This Student Research Fellowship program is facilitated by charging no tuition for the extra year and by the provision of a limited number of stipends that can be paid to students. Approximately 15 - 20 students per year receive competitive one year medical student research fellowships funded by various sources through separate applications arranged by the Office of Student Research. The stipends vary from $20,800- $33,700 per year. These stipends are available on a competitive basis and students in any year are eligible to apply. All stipends are paid directly to the student and are considered taxable income.
Students interested in one-year medical student research fellowships are encouraged to apply for more than one source of funding. Our office will discuss multiple funding choices with students so that they will have the best chance of receiving a one year medical student research fellowship. Additional information on all fellowships is available through the Office of Student Research, ESH 310.
