Thank you for your interest in UMKC’s Rural and Tribal Research Award funded by a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
This award is part of UMKC’s rural medical education program funded in part by HRSA to support medical student training and development for students with a goal to practice in rural, under-served/under resourced, and tribal areas. If you have a research project focused on rural or tribal health, please complete the UMKC Rural and Tribal Research Award Application to apply for a research stipend.
The award will allow for reimbursement for travel to a conference or related research project needs. Awards will be based on how closely the student application and research project match with the goals of the UMKC program and HRSA grant. If you have previously received an award, a second award will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
