2017 UCLA Pediatrics Visiting Elective Scholarship Program

The UCLA Department of Pediatrics Visiting Elective Scholarship Program (VESP) provides financial support to senior U.S. medical students who self-identify as being members of groups underrepresented in medicine, and who are interested in applying to UCLA for a senior clinical elective. The goal of the program is to expose traditionally underrepresented senior medical students from institutions outside of the Los Angeles region to clinical training in our academic pediatrics program, and to learn more about the Pediatrics Residency Training Program at UCLA. Benefits of the program include…

  • Financial support for travel, housing and living expenses, up to $2,000 for each recipient.

  • A faculty mentor will be assigned to each scholarship awardee, with the expectation that the mentor and awardee will meet at least once during the course of the elective period to discuss residency training and other career opportunities at UCLA.

  • The program will host a networking event for scholarship recipients to meet residents and faculty from the UCLA Department of Pediatrics.

  • Additional meetings with UCLA faculty will be arranged at the request of the student. For example, students interested in Ph.D. training may wish to meet with Division Chairs in relevant areas of research.

Applications are being accepted now through October 2017 for electives in the June through December 2017 time window.  For more information on the program and application requirements, please contact Stella Tripp at This email address is being protected from spambots.

UASOM Underrepresented in Medicine Senior Scholarship Program

The Pediatric Clerkship Directors and Pediatric Residency Program Directors are now welcoming applications for the Underrepresented in Medicine Senior Scholarship Program for Pediatrics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine. The Scholarship provides funding for visiting fourth year medical students to participate in four-week clinical rotations in the Department of Pediatrics. Our goal is to attract highly talented students from diverse cultural, socioeconomic, and ethnic backgrounds interested in the field of pediatrics to UAB, providing exposure to our excellent training program. Students from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine, including African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American, in addition to students whose backgrounds may bring a unique dimension to our training program are encouraged to apply. Scholarship recipients will have opportunity to network with faculty members within the Department of Pediatrics as well as UAB’s Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs. Applications will be accepted through July 1, 2017.

If our nation is to make the opportunity for health available to all, we need leaders who will be able to meet the challenges before us—leaders who refuse to be siloed, leaders who refuse to do things the way they have always been done, leaders from all walks of life who reflect the marvelous diversity of our nation.

If you are an early- or mid-career researcher, you can help shape the future. New Connections, one of RWJF’s signature leadership programs, aims to diversify the perspectives that inform RWJF program strategy by providing research grants, networking, and skill building opportunities to scholars from underrepresented and historically disadvantaged backgrounds and/or who are the first in their family to receive a college degree.

This is your opportunity to tap into a global community of scholars and develop new professional collaborations as you refine your own areas of investigation as an independent researcher.

Apply now through May 16, 2017 >
