The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation recommit to gastroenterology's future
Date:8/23/2009

The American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Foundation for Digestive Health and Nutrition (FDHN) today announced that The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation has agreed to renew its three-year grant to benefit high school students who demonstrate high potential for careers in digestive disease research. The Student Research Fellowship Awards program was created by the AGA more than a decade ago to stimulate interest in gastroenterological (GI) research careers in high school, college and medical school students.

"The Broad Foundation and the AGA Foundation for Digestive Health and Nutrition have something very precious in common the first 15 Eli and Edythe L. Broad Student Research High School Fellows, all of whom have successfully completed their research programs," said Sidney Cohen, MD, AGAF, Chairman of the Foundation. "We are most grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Broad for their understanding and generosity in allowing us to increase our efforts to interest talented young people in science generally and in gastroenterology in particular."

The Eli and Edythe L. Broad Student Research Fellowships provide five students a year for three years with $2,500 each to fund a 10-week session of research in digestive diseases or nutrition under the supervision of an approved preceptor. The Broad Foundation first funded the AGA research fellowships in 2007. With the extension of the grant for an additional three years, the total award from The Broad Foundation comes to $75,000. Preceptors are AGA members who serve as full-time faculty members at accredited North American institutions. Past participants of the program have been admitted to undergraduate programs at prestigious universities nationwide, including Harvard University, University of Southern California, Notre Dame University and University of Virginia among others, and the majority has indicated they will continue their studies in medically-related and research fields.
