The HIVMA Medical Students Program awards grants for up to three years to medical student and mentor pairs to support a longitudinal HIV-related clinical learning and/or research project and mentor relationship during medical school. First-, second- or third-year medical students are eligible to apply.
Students and mentors have flexibility in designing their project to complement the school’s curriculum and training requirements. Mentors must be HIVMA/IDSA members and are required to demonstrate a commitment to student mentorship through the duration of the grant.
Medical students receive a $3,500 stipend per year with an additional $1,000 for the mentor/institution for incidental expenses, such as supplies or conference registration. Participating students will receive a free HIVMA/IDSA membership and will be required to submit a brief report at the end of each year.
