Dr. Phyllis H. Madryga Scholarship


Funded by Dr. Phyllis H. Madryga through the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association (NLMA) and its charity the Physicians’ Legacy Foundation, two scholarships valued at $3,000 each will be granted annually in recognition of Dr. Madryga’s many years of dedicated service to the people of rural Newfoundland and Labrador. One scholarship will be made available for students entering family medicine and the other for students entering another speciality.


Eligible students must be in the final year of the doctor of medicine degree program at Memorial University of Newfoundland, originally from rural Newfoundland and Labrador, and members of the NLMA. The recipient must meet the minimum academic requirements for a scholarship as defined by the University. 


The scholarship will be granted by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards on the recommendation of the Dean of Medicine’s Advisory Committee on Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards.
