  • 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 to medical students in U.S. medical schools with mentorship by an IDSA member or fellow. It is the responsibility of IDSA members and fellows to identify and solicit interested students.

    Each scholarship recipient will receive $2,000: $1,500 to be disbursed in April/May, with the remaining $500 awarded at the conclusion of the project and submission of a final report to IDSA.
