Grants and Funding

Weill Cornell Medicine is committed to excellence in patient care, scientific discovery and the education of future physicians in New York City and around the world. The doctors and scientists of Weill Cornell Medicine - faculty from Weill Cornell Medical College, the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences, and the Weill Cornell Physician Organization - are engaged in world-class clinical care and cutting edge research that connects patients to the latest treatment innovations and prevention strategies.

Located in the heart of the Upper East Side's scientific corridor, Weill Cornell Medicine's powerful network of collaborators extends to its parent university, Cornell University, to Qatar, where an international campus offers a U.S. medical degree, and to programs in Tanzania, Haiti, Brazil, Austria and Turkey. WCM faculty provide comprehensive patient care at the NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, NewYork-Presbyterian/Lower Manhattan Hospital and NewYork-Presbyterian/Queens.

Research Funding Opportunities


Fellowship and Scientific Writing Resources

Weill Cornell Graduate School (WCGS) strongly encourages our students to apply for external funding. While we guarantee funding for all students during their training, the process of writing a fellowship allows you to hone your scientific writing skills and develop your research project. Receiving a fellowship can also make your future job applications - in and outside academia - more competitive.

The Office of Fellowships and Scientific Writing (OFSW) supports students through every step of the grant writing and submission process. For more information click here
