The NIH Medical Research Scholars Program
The NIH has initiated a new research training program for medical, dental, and veterinary students called the NIH Medical Research Scholars Program (MRSP). This is a comprehensive year-long research enrichment program designed to provide a broad scope of skills and training experiences appropriate for future research leaders in academic, private-sector, and government institutions. It will also help address the urgent need for a pipeline of qualified physician and dental scientists who can conduct the full range of biomedical research and whose numbers are diminishing. Applications for the 2013-14 program are due on January 15, 2013.
Sarnoff Endowment Fellowship:
The Sarnoff Fellowship Program offers medical students the opportunity to spend a year conducting intensive work in a biomedical research laboratory at an institution other than their own. Although applicants may have prior research experience, applications are also encouraged from students without extensive prior research experience. Applicants enrolled in an MD/PhD program will not be eligible for a Sarnoff Fellowship. The application deadline is January 9, 2013. Applications must be submitted via Sarnoff's web-base application system at http://www.SarnoffFoundation.org

The Graduate Student Association (GSA) of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (JHUSOM) has budgeted funds for supplementing student travel to scientific meetings and/or field work. The principal aim of travel awards is to enable students to participate in events otherwise inaccessible due to shortfalls in laboratory or departmental funding. In addition to financial need, applicants must justify the academic merit of their travels, in terms of presentations (poster or talk) at meetings, thesis-related field work, or a thesis-related course.
