The Wayne Anthony Butts Scholarship is a $5000 award given to one 1st or 2nd year underrepresented minority medical student studying in the New York metropolitan area, in recognition of outstanding academic achievement, leadership, community service, and interest in urban health. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or DACA eligible students who are currently enrolled in an accredited, graduate-level U.S. healthcare program and are from an underrepresented minority.
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.
