  • Medical Student Interest Groups

    In an effort to further educate medical students and residents about the field of Infectious Diseases, IDSA's Education and Research Foundation will provide $500 stipends to support new and existing ID interest group events at medical schools. The purpose of the program is to increase student interest in ID. Events can be talks or journal clubs on topics related to ID, movie screenings, workshops and ID cases, or networking events.

    An award of up to $500 is provided for one semester. Awardees may apply for subsequent years of funding on a competitive basis. Funding cannot be used for salary or institutional overhead.


    Established or developing Interest Groups are eligible to apply. The grant request must be submitted by the faculty sponsor, who is required to be an IDSA member. If you need assistance identifying a sponsor who is an IDSA member, please contact IDSA.


    In order to qualify an IDIG must:

    • Complete and submit the IDIG Funding Application
    • Utilize IDSA sponsorship material during the event 
    • Agree to collect evaluation data from participants during the event
    • Plan to submit an evaluation summary, including contact information for attendees, to IDSA after the event


    Please contact Laila Rosenthal ( with questions.
