These include such fields as epidemiology, biostatistics, economics, management sciences and anthropology. The University of Pennsylvania is 1 of 7 institutions participating in the Program. Twenty Foundation-funded Scholars and 6 VA-funded Fellows are appointed annually. Each program is assigned 2 to 5 Foundation Scholars annually (UCSF/Stanford is a joint program) and 1 VA Fellow. This grant provides support for the 4 Foundation Clinical Scholars in the 1991-93 cohort, including stipends and related expenses.
