Anarcha, Betsy and Lucy Memorial Scholarship Award – NMF

Established by NMF Alumna Yvonne S. Thornton, MD, MPH, FACOG, the Anarcha, Betsy and Lucy Memorial Scholarship is given in honor of three slaves who, as subjects of experimentation that helped shape advances in current clinical and surgical knowledge, are recognized today as the Mothers of Gynecology.

This scholarship will be given annually to an African-American woman who is a known descendant of American slaves. She must be enrolled in an accredited US medical school program. Finalists will be interviewed by Dr. Thornton.
