American Skin Association offers Competitive Research Grants to Medical Students

Competitive research funding for medical students in dermatology is scarce. However, one reliable funding source for medical student dermatology research in a melanoma and/or nonmelanoma skin cancer research funding is the American Skin Association (ASA). The ASA student research grants are for $7000. Complete applications must be submitted by the October 1, 2015 deadline. Only one student grant application is permitted per institution. Additional grant application information is available at the ASA web site ( americanskin.org ). Medical students interested in applying for this grant from UTMB should speak to their faculty mentor about their research idea, because support letters from the faculty mentor and department chair are needed as part of the grant application.
