MD students who obtained a PhD prior to matriculation may apply for a fellowship only for research that has focus substantially different from that of their prior doctoral studies.


Students who are in or accepted into an MD/PhD program are not eligible.
Students holding a MedScholars award at the time they are accepted to an MD/PhD program may continue their MedScholars project and receive their MedScholars funding up to the time that they are admitted to the MD/PhD program.  Normally students may not receive MedScholars funds after they are admitted to an MD/PhD program. Students in MD/PhD programs remain ineligible for MedScholars funding until they have defended their doctoral dissertation or officially withdrawn from their PhD program.  After that point, students who are still enrolled in the MD program become eligible for MedScholars funding.
