Now Accepting Applications for the 2023-2024 Academic Year


Funds for Educational and Scholarly Opportunities

The University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine Funds for Educational and Scholarly Opportunities program was established to support students who would like to travel to conferences, alternative learning opportunities or similar events. Grants are funded through donations to the Larner College of Medicine.

Applications must be submitted at least 2 months ahead of the proposed travel. Applications that meet certain criteria will be reviewed and approved by the FESO committee. The award will not exceed $750 and students will only be awarded FESO funding once throughout their medical education at the Larner College of Medicine.

Please do not apply more than nine months ahead of your travel date. Program guidelines can be reviewed here. Applicants can submit their FESO application electronically to Caroline Wolf and contact her with any questions. 

International Travel During Your Medical Education

Traveling abroad during your medical education is an exciting and rewarding experience. Our students have the opportunity to travel abroad at various points in the curriculum, especially during the summer between their first and second year or during the Advanced Integration portion of the curriculum. The Larner College of Medicine Scholarly Grant Program can help make these experiences possible.

If you are considering traveling abroad, please review our Medical Student Handbook Policy 920.00 - International Travel for information regarding student travel overseas.
