Inquiry Funding Office

As an integrated component of the UCSF curriculum, the Inquiry Funding Office enhances student scholarship through specialized training programs, expert mentorship, and competitive funding opportunities in the following areas:


summer explore grants



Distinction in year-long research


inquiry dissemination awards


Advancing research and health care worldwide, the Inquiry Funding Office also supported the development of 15 Global Health Rotations, totaling $30K in 2018.

Our faculty specialize in advising students in successful applications for extramural yearlong sources including Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, and Sarnoff Fellowships, among others.  In addition to these intramural sources, we can serve as a gateway to extramural grant sources for projects costs, scholarship, and clinical rotations.

For those looking to conduct research or collect credit for work abroad, or receive funding for an international rotation, we provide the Trainee International Travel Resources (TITR) Course.

We also curate a listing of hundreds International Student Experiences to guide future travelers from all UCSF Professional Schools.
