  • Medical Scholars Program -
    Eligibility and Reporting Requirements 

    Eligibility Requirements

    • Students in the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd year of an accredited U.S. or Canadian medical school are eligible for this award. This includes students enrolled in MD-PhD programs that are in the PhD phase of their program.
    • The scholarship activity must focus on pediatric or adult infectious diseases and may involve either clinical or research activities.
    • Acceptable clinical activities can range from a preceptorial relationship with an ID consultant to participation in clinical trials or any other appropriate variant of clinical activities.
    • Acceptable research activities include all facets of infectious diseases, including epidemiology, microbiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
    • Each student must have a mentor who is an IDSA member or fellow.
    • Past award recipients may not reapply.
    • Multiple students working on the same project may apply but must submit separate applications.

    Reporting Requirements

    Students will need to provide an abstract and answer the following questions and turn in a brief final report at the end of the activity, or the balance of the funding will be forfeited:

    • How did the scholarship help you to complete your project? Would you have been able to do it without the Medical Scholars Program's funding?
    • Were the results of your work published in a journal or presented at a meeting? Do you have plans to do so?
    • Have you carried your research beyond the scope of your original proposal? Do you plan to?
    • What will you do next in your ID career?  For example, will you enter into a residency? If so, which program?
    • What could the IDSA Foundation do to improve the Medical Scholars Program?
