Funding Information

The Office of Medical Student research obtains funding for nearly all medical students who participate in research.

All medical students who participate in the Summer Research Program (SRP) receive stipends. Our office works hard throughout the year to secure funding from multiple sources, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), private foundations, the Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS), the dean, and department heads throughout the School of Medicine.

Participants in the SRP can expect stipends at the current NIH funding level for predoctoral researchers. For the 2016 SRP, this was equal to $1,948 per month, resulting in a $4,870 stipend for 2.5 months of research.
