The Office of Student Affairs sponsors the Medical Student Summer Research Fellowship program for incoming, second-year, and third-year medical students. Information from faculty willing to sponsor students for the summer is distributed in the spring to eligible students. Opportunities are available in basic science, translational, and public health research programs. For more information on this fellowship, please contact Julie McDaniel at (859) 257-1652 or Julie.email@example.com.
The Center for Clinical and Translational Science provides fellowships
in clinical research for professional students. Interested students
must complete the "Introduction to Clinical Research" course offered in the summer and as an elective in the spring semester. Students will then identify a principal investigator involved in research who will serve as
mentor and submit an application. In addition, students engage in a specific curriculum designed to
promote sound clinical research practices. Applications are accepted twice a year. Initial awards are for one year with the possibility of renewal.
To maintain eligibility, fellowship students must submit quarterly progress reports and their mentors must submit quarterly evaluations.
Students with research interests at the interface of Medicine and Engineering can apply for the prestigious Halcomb Fellow Award, which provides $25,000 per year for two years for a research project directed by dual mentors from an engineering discipline and the biomedical sciences.
Philanthropic Education Organization (PEO) Scholar Awards are one-time competitive, merit-based awards for women of the United States and Canada who are either pursuing a doctoral level degree or are engaged in postdoctoral research at an accredited college, university or institution. In addition to recognizing and encouraging excellence in higher education, these awards provide partial support for study and research for women who will make significant contributions in their varied fields of endeavor. Priority is given to women who are well established in their programs, study or research. For more information, please visit the PEO web site.
