Established in 2018, the Genita Evangelista Johnson Endowed Scholarship provides a $2,500 award to one female African American current or recently graduated high school senior in Los Angeles County, who has been accepted into a four-year collegiate program and has a strong interest in pursuing a career in medicine. The recipient must show proof of college enrollment upon selection. Other than the aforementioned criteria, this scholarship doesn't otherwise have a lot of restrictions.
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.
