Residency Interview Travel Award (for students with children)

The Residency Interview Travel Award program was established in 2010 by Dr.  and Mrs. Allen Daugird. Their gift grew out of concern for students with young families, who do not have the expendable income to support the cost of residency interviewing, an expense which cannot be met using student financial aid. Grants will be available to qualifying students.

  • Be a fourth-year UNC School of Medicine student participating in the 2015 Match;
  • Have at least five (5) residency interviews scheduled;
