Student Funding Opportunities
SGA Creative Initiative Grant
The Creative Initiative Grant exists to provide funding opportunities for projects that benefit the DUCOM student body. Grant applications are reviewed on a monthly basis by the SGA Executive Board.
SGA Medical Student Research Grant
The Medical Student Research Grant aims to fund student efforts to create and present original scientific knowledge.
Conferences and scientific meetings are valuable forums for professional students to present original work, learn about current findings in their field of interest, and network with other members of their professional community. The award is intended for meeting-related expenses: conference registration and associated fees such as poster printing, travel and lodging, which are often barriers to student travel. The award recipient is expected to be budget-conscious and pursue any outside awards and stipends. Applicants must be in good academic standing and must be presenting an original poster or oral presentation. Award recipients are required to display their affiliation with the College of Medicine and should consider presenting their research at Drexel Discovery Day in the fall.
In an effort to provide as many students as possible with funding opportunities, each grant will be limited to a maximum of $500. Additionally, students are eligible for one grant during their time as a Drexel medical student. MD/PhD students are not eligible during their years dedicated to PhD study. Recipients are encouraged to seek out other sources of funding to supplement this award.
Applications will be reviewed twice per year (October and March). If approved, refunds are processed through the submission of itemized receipts to firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck and we value your effort!
