IDSA ID Interest Group Funding Application

In an effort to further educate medical students and residents about the field of Infectious Diseases, IDSA will provide $500 stipends  to support new and existing ID interest group events at medical schools. The purpose of the program is to increase student interest in ID. Events can be talks or journal clubs on topics related to ID, movie screenings,  workshops and ID cases, or networking events.

An award of up to $500 is provided for one semester. Awardees may apply for subsequent years of funding on a competitive basis. Funding cannot be used for salary or institutional overhead.


Established or developing Interest Groups are eligible to apply. The grant request must be submitted by the faculty sponsor, who is required to be an IDSA member. If you need assistance identifying a sponsor who is an IDSA member, please contact IDSA.

  • Complete and submit the IDIG Funding Application
