Hitchcock Foundation Student Research Award

For Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth students

The purpose of this award is to recognize academic excellence, to increase awareness of research opportunities, to encourage students to enter the field of biomedical research and to reward the best project with a cash prize.

The award is designed to support a research project of a Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth student, working in conjunction with an established faculty investigator at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center or Dartmouth College, during an elective period. The project may range from one that is done completely during the elective period to time spent completing a project begun early in the student's career at Geisel.

The nature and duration of the award should be structured to meet the individual needs of both student and faculty advisor. The award of up to $1,500 is for the purchase of equipment and/or supplies, and for such other authorized expenses as may be necessary to carry out this project. The award winner will receive a $500 cash prize and may also apply for an additional supplemental award of up to $500 to cover expenses to present the results of the research at a national meeting.
