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 awarded 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 $10,000 scholarship will be given to one African-American woman who is a known descendant of enslaved Americans, and is enrolled in an accredited U.S. medical school program for the coming academic year. Finalists will be interviewed by Dr. Thornton.

Applications are currently closed.
