ASTDA Summer Research Fellowship for Graduate/Professional Students and Post-Doctoral Trainees

The Summer Research Fellowship is designed to provide financial support for students and post-doctoral trainees to conduct a mentored STI-related research project during a 3-4 month period over the academic summer break.

The goals of the Summer Research Fellowship are to:

    • Encourage trainees to conduct STI/sexual health research
    • Provide financial support that permits trainees to dedicate time to an STI or sexual health research project
    • Encourage established STI and sexual health researchers to dedicate time to mentoring trainees and recognize the mentor’s contribution with an honorarium
    • Advance the ASTDA mission to foster scientific knowledge, develop leadership, and champion practice in the field of sexually transmitted infections

Eligible applicants include students enrolled in graduate (masters or doctoral program) or professional school and recent graduates who have completed their degree within the past 3 years and are now post-doctoral scholars. Faculty are not eligible. People who are newer to the field of sexual health/STI will be given priority for this award.
