The Alfred D. Gilchrist Student Leader Scholarship Foundation was established in 2020 to honor the namesake's 40-year career of physician advocacy. Mr. Gilchrist is the former CMS CEO. In its inaugural year the Foundation awarded five scholarships totaling $7,000. The 2022 total distribution was $10,000 and we are looking forward to our 2023 distributions to be as high as $10,000.
Third- and fourth-year medical students who have demonstrated a significant leadership contribution to organized medicine are eligible for a scholarship award. Previous awardees are not eligible. Preference will be given to students who are active with CMS or a component medical society. Full criteria can be found in the application packet.
This scholarship rewards students who desire to expand their future reach and influence to create better health and healthier communities. Scholarships will be awarded in May/June 2023.
