Extra Help for Current MD Program Students

MD Student Resources

The University of Michigan Medical School has limited funds available for special financial needs of students, over and above the standard budgeted expenses. Students may apply to the MD Emergency Student Aid Fund to assist with emergency expenses such as uninsured medical and dental expenses, emergency travel costs, and emergency car repairs. The MD Travel Grant is intended to assist students with the cost of traveling to attend a conference where the student is presenting original research. Students may also apply to this fund to help with costs associated with an approved away rotation.
