The Travelers Summer Research Fellowship Program is designed to give 25
premedical students deeper insights into the field of medicine, including
issues that greatly affect the health of traditionally underserved groups.
Through the experiences of laboratory or clinical research, the student
learns how one pursues a specific research problem under the supervision of
a faculty member, thus providing an early education into basic research
techniques that could be applicable to any area of medicine.
Students receive a $140-a-week cost-of-living allowance and are housed rent
- free in the dormitory for medical students, but are required to pay for
their meals and other living expenses. Travel expenses are paid for students
that live some distance from New York.
