The Carolina Medical Student Research Program is for students who have completed at least their first semester of medical school. The funding is comprised of grant stipends for about 40 students to engage in research each year. Projects are short-term (8-12 weeks) and are conducted in the summer after the first year of medical school. Occasionally, one-year or short-term school year projects are funded, as money is available.
The Kevin R. Stone, MD ‘81 Travel Fellowships or Stone Travel Fellowships will be given annually to up to four MS4 students in good academic standing interested in a personally and professionally significant four-week elective rotation outside of North Carolina. Funds can be used to cover travel, lodging and food. Approx value $3,000.
Kevin R. Stone, MD’81 in grateful appreciation for his medical education and seminal travel experiences while a student at the UNC School of Medicine established this award in 2014-15. Dr. Stone believes firmly that the opportunity for medical students to travel domestically or internationally for a four-week elective rotation during their fourth year can be transformational to their professional careers and personal lives, while providing an opportunity to enrich the collective medical experience in North Carolina, yet, most students are unable to afford the cost of an away rotation.
Interested candidates should apply for the Stone Travel Fellowship in writing to Sheila Graham by July 1st. The Application consists of a one page or less description of where (domestic or international) of where you wish to travel for an elective rotation and include how the rotation will inspire your education and impact the medical community of North Carolina.
