The ASTRO Medical Student Fellowship Award for Underrepresented Populations(formerly the Minority Summer Fellowship Award) introduces medical students from backgrounds that are underrepresented in medicine (URM) to the discipline of radiation oncology early in their medical education. For the purposes of this program, races and ethnicities that have been identified as URM include but are not limited to American Indian/Alaska Native, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander.
Medical students in all years are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to first- and second-year students. In an effort to promote radiation oncology as a career choice, the fellowship will expose students to clinical, basic and translational research questions in radiation oncology
Deadline: Feb. 16, 2023
