Pritzker Fellowships

New Pritzker Fellowships Support External Experiences for Students

The Pritzker School of Medicine recently announced it will offer financial support to selected students who choose to pursue a one-year research project, international experience, or community service work. The intent behind the Pritzker Fellowships runs parallel to the Pritzker Initiative: supporting the development of future leaders in medicine across the spectrum of research, scholarship, and service.

Students chosen to receive one of the fellowships will receive $20,000, beginning in July 2009 and continuing throughout the 2009-2010 academic year. Eligible students must have completed at least two years at the Pritzker School of Medicine. All applicants must have a faculty sponsor who will provide mentorship and support during this year and ensure the completion of the proposed project. Participating students will ultimately present their work in at least one forum, be it Medical Education Day, Senior Scientific Session, or a regional or national conference.

We are committed to providing our students with ample opportunities to explore scholarly work and understand the breadth of discovery that is possible. Applications are due to dean-for-meded@bsd.uchicago.edu no later than January 30, 2009.
