IDSA Medical Scholars Program
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 offers scholarships of up to $2,000 to medical students with mentorship by an IDSA member or fellow.
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.
IDSA members and fellows are encouraged to identify and solicit interested students and to serve as mentors.

HIVMA Medical Students Program
First-, second-, and third-year medical students may apply for the new HIVMA Medical Student Program, which will award grants for up to three years to medical students to complete an HIV-related project.
Students and mentors have flexibility in designing the project to complement their schools' curriculum and training. Awardees will receive free HIVMA/IDSA membership, and a $3,500 stipend per year for up to three years. The program provides an additional $1,000 for mentors and institutions per year to support incidental expenses including supplies and conference registration.
The deadline to apply for both programs is February 15.
