FULL YEAR RESEARCH SCHOLARSHIP
Since 2002, the Alumni Fund of the Alumni Association-College of Medicine has been offering a scholarship to support full-time research for a medical student.
This scholarship provides $36,000 for a student to conduct full-time research for one academic year.
The Alumni Association of SUNY-Downstate Medical College offers funds to support one or more medical students who are planning a year of full-time research during the academic year 2021-2022. Student applicants must have completed at least one year of matriculation by July 1, 2020. Priority is given to projects that are planned to occur at SUNY-Downstate or an affiliate, but all applications will be carefully reviewed. An application form is attached.
Applications for the Alumni Fund Research Grant need to include the following:
b. original copy of a transcript of medical school record
c. description of research project
d. letter from the research sponsor endorsing the proposed study and offering to support the research project, and a letter from the faculty advisor, if applicable, about the research project.
[The research sponsor is the laboratory director where the project will be done. That may be the same person as the faculty advisor. However, for off-campus projects at another university or research center, a SUNY Downstate faculty advisor is also required.]
A report to the Alumni Fund, including copies of publications, is to be made mid-year, and at the conclusion of the scholarship year.
Please contact if you need guidance.
Application Deadline: January 15, 2021
