Funding Opportunities

Funding for Research at Home and Abroad

Travel Funds

Travel Awards

The Alpert Medical School has a limited pool of funds to help support students attending national and international academic conferences either to present scholarly work or to represent AMS in a leadership capacity. AMS may be able to reimburse students for reasonable (coach) travel and lodging expenses, and conference registration fees. Please understand that this funding is limited. We encourage students to budget wisely and consider cost-sharing measures, such as sharing hotel rooms, when possible. 

In order ensure the greatest amount of equity possible across a large student body, an individual student will only be eligible for two financial awards (starting FY2018) in any given fiscal year (conference date July 1 through June 30).  Any additional awards will be made at the discretion of the Associate Dean, Allan Tunkel.  For any given poster or oral presentation, AMS can only fund a maximum of two student presenters.

Eligible Applicants: To apply for funding, please send a copy of your abstract (if applicable), and documentation of your acceptance to the conference, to Emily Green (emily_green@brown.edu). All application materials must be received and the award approved prior to the start of the conference. Awards are generally up to $750 for conferences in the United States and Canada, and up to $1000 for conferences elsewhere. Each student attending a conference, even if attending as part of a student group, must submit an individual application for funding. In the case that multiple students are attending the same conference, the sharing of hotel rooms and transportation costs (such as taxis) will be expected.

2018 Pisacano Scholarship

The Pisacano Scholars Leadership Program provides educational programs, leadership training, and funding for outstanding fourth-year medical students for a four-year period.  Students must make a commitment to the specialty of family medicine.  The funding program is designed to reimburse a portion of medical school debt incurred by the student by the conclusion of the required three-year residency.  The Foundation is especially interested in students who exhibit the highest levels of skill, compassion, and leadership.  A firm and continuing commitment to the specialty of family medicine is an essential precedent for any applicant to receive a Pisacano Scholarship.

A portion of the funds will be distributed to the student during their fourth-year of medical school, and the remaining funds will be distributed over the required three-year residency. The maximum scholarship award is $28,000. Recipients are awarded up to $7,000 per year for up to four years.
