The Pritzker Fellowship Program
The Pritzker School of Medicine will provide financial support to select students who choose to pursue a one-year research project, international experience, or community service work. The goal of the Pritzker Fellowships is to support the development of future leaders in medicine across the spectrum of research, scholarship, and service.
Requirements of the fellowship award include:
- Provision of an interim report at six months
- Final report within one month of completing the fellowship year.
- Participating students are also expected to present their work at one or more forum (Senior Scientific Session, regional or national conference) following completion of the fellowship year.
- In order to accommodate the needs of all students who wish to take a year off for research, students who receive external funding for scholarly work proposed in the Pritzker Fellowship Application must notify the Pritzker Fellowship Steering Committee ASAP. If the external funding is similar to the amount provided by the Pritzker Fellowship, the funds will be redistributed.
Things to know before you apply:
