An important part of IDSA's mission is to promote the subspecialty of infectious diseases by attracting the best and brightest medical students to the field. To further this goal, the IDSA Education and Research Foundation (ERF) offers scholarships to medical students with mentorship by an IDSA member or fellow. IDSA members and fellows are encouraged to identify and solicit interested students and to serve as mentors.
Students in any year of medical school are eligible for this award. The scholarship activity must focus on pediatric or adult infectious diseases and may involve either clinical or research activities. Each scholarship recipient will receive $2,000.
Applications for the Medical Scholars Program must be postmarked by March 1.
For application instructions, eligibility information, and reporting requirements, please visit the IDSA website, call (703) 740-4788, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
