Offers Educational Loans to Jewish Students
Deadline: May 15, 2017
Albert Strickler Memorial Fund
Dr. Albert Strickler, founder of Philadelphia’s Skin and Cancer Hospital, established this fund through an endowment. Dr. Strickler recognized the need to assist talented men and women to pursue their medical education. The fund provides an interest-free loan of up to $5,000 to medical students, preferably of the Jewish faith, as an aid to their education. Students should demonstrate a significant need of financial aid and be enrolled in an accredited U.S. Medical or Osteopathic school. It is a requirement of this fund that loan repayments begin within five years after graduation. This ensures that funds will continue to be available for future students in need. The Strickler Fund application is combined with the Feinman Fund application. The Feinman Fund is described below.

The Student Summer Fellowship program offers opportunities for medical students to complete a research or service project related to community health. Projects must be focused on studying cultural competency issues, developing skills to become relationship-centered physicians, and addressing a public health need in an under-served community or population. The grant award includes a $4,000 stipend for a 10-week period. Projects that do not meet the 10-week requirement will be prorated accordingly.
Medical students at an accredited U.S. or Canadian school of allopathy or osteopathy may apply for either the Research or Service Fellowships (further described below) .
The student is expected to conduct the project under the oversight of a mentor (the student is responsible for identifying an appropriate mentor from their school). Multiple students can work together and submit one set of forms. A final report is due at the conclusion of the Fellowship.
The following are not requirements but we are particularly interested in projects that:
- Encourage collegial teamwork, particularly inter-professional teams that include participants from other disciplines.
- Are novel and unique – designed and implemented by students.
