The Department of Surgery believes that our surgeons should be as diverse as the patients we serve and are committed to working toward that goal. Below are available grants and scholarships available to medical students at University of Utah.

Travel Stipend for Dependent Care

University of Utah Health strongly supports faculty who are working to balance family wellness with scholarly and professional obligations. With initial funding from the Castleton Family and donations from U of U Health leaders, funds are available to individual faculty members to offset the costs associated with dependent care (e.g., child, ill/disabled partner, or elder care) expenses while traveling to attend professional meetings, conferences, workshops, study sections, and other professional development offerings away from home. This pilot funding mechanism is aimed at improving the career success of diverse faculty. This stipend will support up to $1,500 per faculty member, per fiscal year, for approved expenses.  Application information can be found here
