The Sarnoff Fellowship Program funded by Sarnoff Cardiovascular Research Foundation supports medical students enrolled in accredited U.S. medical schools with the opportunity to spend a year conducting intensive work in a biomedical research facility in the United States. Applications are encouraged from students without prior research experience. Second and third year medical students are encouraged to apply. Fourth year medical students are required to submit an official letter from their medical schools granting graduation deferment for the application. Applicants enrolled in an MD/PhD program are not eligible to apply. Members of underrepresented or historically disadvantaged backgrounds are encouraged to apply. There are no citizenship requirements for application. Applicants who are not U.S. citizens must have an appropriate visa.
The fellowship offers a 35,000 USD annual stipend. Allowances up to 8,000 USD are also funded for travel support, to select a Preceptor and Fellowship laboratory and attend the Sarnoff Annual Scientific Meeting and American Heart Association Scientific Sessions, moving expenses and health insurance.
