American College of Gastroenterology Summer Scholars Program

Minority Affairs and Cultural Diversity Committee

Purpose The Minority Affairs and Cultural Diversity Committee of the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) is committed to outreach through scholarship and mentorship. We believe that there should be a focus on undergraduate medical trainees underrepresented in medicine for mentorship and research to increase representation of these groups in gastroenterology. Our summer program serves the dual purpose of highlighting the field of gastroenterology along with increased exposure to academic medicine. ​

Eligible Participants There are two criteria that students must meet in order to be eligible for the summer fellowship. First, eligible students must be currently enrolled in an accredited allopathic or osteopathic medical school, be in good academic standing at their program and be in either their first, second or third year of medical school. Second, eligible students must be from a racial/ethnic group that is from one of the following underrepresented groups: American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Black, Afro-Caribbean, or African American, Hispanic or Latino, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander.
