Eligibility and Guidelines

Students who are working on an approved research project with a faculty member in the Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine are eligible to apply. Priority for funding will be given to postdoctoral fellows and postgraduate trainees who are completing traineeships within the division. Individuals who are not formal division trainees will be evaluated in terms of their level of contact and participation in division activities.

  • Most awards will be about $250 with a maximum of $1,000 per individual per year.
  • Applicants can apply for funds from one or all funds. However, the maximum total award amount remains $1,000.
