AHA Medical Student Scholarships- Apply by March 1, 2011

The Scientific Councils of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association want to stimulate interest, knowledge and investigative work in students in medicine, nursing, public health, nutrition and other allied health disciplines to conduct research projects related to cardiovascular disease, stroke and basic sciences early during pre-doctoral training.    

AHA Council-sponsored scholarships provide valuable stipends for graduate medical students or allied health graduate students for use during a summer research project.  The stipends may be used for student expenses, lab fees, or other costs incurred by the student during the project.  

Eligible applicants include students in medical schools or in masters or equivalent programs in an accredited school in the United States where research training in cardiovascular disease and stroke is available.    

  • Student Scholarships in Cerebrovascular Disease and Stroke
    (Sponsored by the Stroke Council) 
    Up to five $2000 scholarships will be available for students specifically researching cerebrovascular disease and stroke.  Scholarship recipients will also have the opportunity to receive a travel grant to attend the AHA’s International Stroke Conference in 2013.  
  • Student Scholarships in Cardiovascular Disease
    (Sponsored by 12 AHA Scientific Councils)
    Up to thirty $2000 scholarships will be available for students researching cardiovascular disease topics within basic, clinical, or population sciences.  

Applications are currently being accepted through 5:00 p.m. Central Time on Thursday, March 1, 2012.  Students may only apply for one of these programs, not both.  Please visit for more information and application instructions.  
Contact Award Manager Julie Hinterthuer if you have questions.
