URiM Grant Opportunities
Northwell Health and The Smith Institute for Urology promote a culture of diversity and inclusion. We aim to foster an environment in which groups that have been historically underrepresented in medicine (URiM) excel, ensuring diversity amongst our future leaders.
The Smith Institute for Urology is proud to offer grant awards to eligible URiM fourth year medical students who participate in our Urology sub-internship clerkship. Each sub-intern will be supported with $1,500 for travel and living expenses.
The award is available for either of our two residency programs at The Smith Institute – North Shore/Long Island Jewish Medical Center or Lenox Hill Hospital.
URiM groups include those persons who identify as Black (African/African American), Latino/Hispanic (Mexican American, CubanAmerican, Puerto Rican, Central American, South American), Native American, and Native Hawaiian. We also welcome applications from medical students with social identities or backgrounds that are otherwise underrepresented in medicine.
How to Apply?
All applicants must be in good standing in their home medical school and apply to the clerkship through the Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO) program through the AAMC. In addition, interested applicants should submit a statement of interest below. Please specify which program/location(s) to which you are applying.
