The David E. Rogers Student Fellowship Award (For Medical and Dental Students)
Purpose: The David E. Rogers Student Fellowship Award is meant to enrich the educational experiences of medical and dental students through projects that bear on medicine and dentistry as they contribute to the health of communities, and to address the human needs of underserved or disadvantaged patients or populations. The content of the Fellowship might include clinical investigation, public health/epidemiology, health policy analysis, activities linking biomedicine, the social infrastructure and human or community need.
Eligibility Requirements: Competition is open to candidates attending medical or dental school in the United States. Funding will be provided for research projects lasting between ten (10) and twelve (12) weeks in the summer of the application year, between the applicant’s first and second years of medical/dental school. Additionally, eligible candidates are required to be a US citizen, permanent resident of the US, or authorized to work in the US for the period of time covered by this proposed award.
Application Deadline: January 15, 2021
Additional Information: Up to five grants will be awarded with a stipend of $4,000 each for student research projects in the summer of the award year. The stipend will be paid directly to the sponsoring institution in two equal installments (at the beginning and end of the grant period). The second payment will be contingent upon the submission of a written report on the project. Student grantees are additionally expected to present their research findings at the Academy’s annual Medical Student Forum in September following the summer of their project, to an audience of Academy Fellows, faculty mentors, research colleagues and fellow student grant awardees.
