The scientific councils of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association want to stimulate interest, knowledge and investigative work in students in medicine, nursing, public health, nutrition and other allied health disciplines. AHA Student Scholarships support students conducting research projects related to cardiovascular disease, stroke and basic sciences early during pre-doctoral training, usually during the summer. AHA scholarships provide valuable stipends for students during the research project. The stipends may be used for student expenses, lab fees, or other costs incurred by the student during the project.
Student Scholarships in Cardiovascular Disease
(Sponsored by Multiple AHA/ASA Scientific Councils)
$2000 scholarships will be available for students researching cardiovascular disease topics within basic, clinical, or population sciences.
Student Scholarships in Cerebrovascular Disease and Stroke
