Orthopedic Surgery Diversity Scholarships & Grants for Medical Students
NYU Langone’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery is committed to providing medical students who are underrepresented minorities and women the opportunity to gain clinical experience in the field. We offer funded positions to support students in this effort.
The J. Serge and May Parisien Medical Student Scholarship
Through the generosity of J. Serge and May Parisien, we offer two scholarships for eligible fourth-year medical students to supplement the cost of travel and living in New York City during our one-month senior medical student elective clinical clerkship in orthopedic surgery.
The department’s Committee on Diversity evaluates applications and awards up to two $1,250 scholarships to deserving medical students.
Applicants should first apply to the orthopedic surgery elective and then complete the diversity application below. Instructions on submission and contact information are included in the application.
To be eligible to receive the scholarship, you must be accepted as a medical student in a regular four-week rotation, be from an accredited allopathic medical school in the United States, be in good standing academically, and complete the elective.
Department of Orthopedic Surgery Diversity Grant
In addition to the Parisien scholarship, the department allocates diversity funds on a yearly basis for students participating in the summer externship program. The number of grants varies from year to year.
