*BEFORE YOU APPLY

  • Make sure to check your eligibility! Check the RAPtr website for eligibility and funding limits before you begin. Stay aware of University policies regarding student research funding and program-specific deadlines and requirements. Also review information for students in your School, as there can be specific departmental requirements for students in Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, Pharmacy and Physical Therapy. For international work, read the UCSF Trainee Travel Policy regarding countries that carry a State Department Warning , and SOM applicants also need to read the Training Affiliation Agreement Policy.
  • Prepare your recommender! 
    • Inform your recommender (persons other than the mentor, co-mentor, or dean on the application) to comment on your talents, abilities, promise and potential. Send your recomenders an advanced copy of the recommender form. (When you fill out the application, you will be instructed to email them the actual link to the recommender form.)

Note: The recommendation letter process has changed (beginning 2016/17). Students will no longer upload recommender letters to their application. Instead, students will forward a recommender form link to each of their recommenders. Once the recommenders complete the form by uploading their letters, the forms will be routed to the students’ application.

Important Deadline Information:

  • SOM GH Research or IPG Grants are for work to begin during or after the quarter following the quarter of application.  For example, the deadline of July 15th allows international work to begin in Fall Quarter; the deadline of April 15th allows international work to begin in Summer Quarter, and so forth.  If the work abroad begins before the date listed, any funding award would be pro-rated in order to cover work done within the correct period.
  • Resident Funding Opportunities (separate from the GH Clinical Scholars Program) have their own deadlines, which can be found here.
