Anarcha, Betsey, and Lucy Memorial Scholarship Award

Established by NMF Alumna Yvonne S. Thornton, MD, MPH, FACOG, the Anarcha, Betsey, and Lucy Memorial Scholarship 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 enslaved Americans, and is enrolled in an accredited US medical school program for the 2021-2022 academic year. Finalists will be interviewed by Dr. Thornton.

2022 applications are now closed.
