Funding for Research at Home and Abroad
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.

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.
