First-year Medical Student Summer Research
First year student summer research applications are due on April 13, 2024. Summer research stipends are awarded in the amount of $565.50/week per student. Stipends are paid on a weekly basis. To be fair to all medical students, this stipend amount is in line with the National Institutes of Health pay level for a predoctoral stipend for research.
