DSMM Scholars will be encouraged to compete for a Borden Scholar award:

  • Scholars will be encouraged to submit a 3-5 page translational research proposal during the last few months of the program. Ideally these proposals would stem from ideas generated through their DSMM participation.
  • Five Scholars/year will receive a cash award based on outstanding translational research proposal; these winners will be named “Borden Scholars.”

This award is thanks to a generous gift from Dr. and Mrs. Ernest and Louise Borden (Duke Medical and Nursing School alumni).
