External Funding Sources and Awards Granted to Current MD-PhD Students
Tri-I MD-PhD students have been extremely successful in obtaining external funding for their research. Beyond the awards themselves, the process of applying for external grants is a useful part of students’ professional training and is actively encouraged and supported by the Program faculty.
Currently, at least 30 students in the Tri-I MD-PhD Program and at least 50% of each incoming class have NIH F-series awards, including F30 and F31-Diversity awards from the
- National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD)
- National Cancer Institute (NCI)
Additionally, current Tri-I MD-PhD students have been awarded funding from the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowship for New Americans.
