The New York Academy of Medicine works to change the systems that prevent people from accessing what they need to be healthy, including safe and affordable housing, healthy food, quality health care, and more.
To that end, NYAM welcomes applications for the David E. Rogers Student Fellowship Award. Through the program, up to five medical or dental students will be awarded with stipends of $4,000 in support of projects that bear on medicine and dentistry as they contribute to the health of communities and that address the human needs of underserved or disadvantaged patients or populations. The fellowship can include clinical investigation, public health/epidemiology projects, health policy analysis, and activities linking biomedicine, social infrastructure, and human or community need.
Funding will be provided for research projects lasting between ten and twelve weeks in the summer between the applicant's first and second years of medical/dental school.
To be eligible, applicants are required to be a citizen or permanent resident of the U.S. or be authorized to work in the U.S. for the period of time covered by award. Students enrolled in combined MD/PhD programs are not eligible for the program.
See the New York Academy of Medicine website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
