The Anarcha, Betsy, and Lucy Memorial Scholarship Award is given in honor of three enslaved women who, as subjects of experimentation, helped shape advances in clinical and surgical knowledge and are recognized today as the Mothers of Gynecology. This $5,000 scholarship will be given to one African-American woman who is a known descendant of American slaves, and is enrolled in an accredited US medical school program.
Since inception, National Medical Fellowships’ scholarships and awards have been at the core of its programming. NMF scholarship programs recognize merit as well as financial need. Over the years, funding for scholarships has come from hundreds of foundations and from individuals. NMF actively seeks and welcomes partnerships to build and expand the types and amount of support we provide to our scholars.
