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



year-long grants


travel & dissemination awards



Our faculty have specialized in advising students in successful applications for extramural yearlong sources including the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, 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 abroad, or who wish to receive funding for an international rotation, we curate a listing of international opportunities.
