Departmental or other non-CURF-administered grants and programs
The winner of the Terry B. Heled Travel & Research Grant will receive $2,000 toward the costs of travel for research that will lead to a significant writing project. The travel and research will be conducted during the summer (between mid-May and the end of August). Candidates who propose a trip of longer rather than shorter duration will be given priority, and candidates who propose to travel beyond North America will also get priority, but any travel plan—to any place, of any length—will receive serious consideration based on the quality of the project.
The Leonard Davis Institute Summer Undergraduate Minority Research (SUMR) Program is for rising undergraduate sophomores, juniors, seniors, and in the exceptional case graduating seniors from underrepresented minority groups, or anyone interested in exploring the field of health services research. The SUMR program, which runs for 12 weeks from May 28 through August 16, provides students with an opportunity to receive a stipend to conduct health services research on a topic of their choice, under the guidance of Penn faculty.

These awards include special consideration for students enrolled in the Huntsman Program.

The fundamental objective of MMUF is to increase the number of minority students, and others with a demonstrated commitment to eradicating racial disparities, who will pursue Ph.D.s in core fields in the arts and sciences. The program aims to reduce over time the serious underrepresentation on the faculties of individuals from certain minority groups, as well as to address the attendant educational consequences of these disparities.
