NLMA Leadership Scholarship


Funded by the Newfoundland and Labrador Medical Association (NLMA) through its charity the Physicians’ Legacy Foundation, one scholarship valued at $1,000 will be granted annually in recognition of the NLMA’s mission to “represent and support a united medical profession and provide leadership in the provision of excellent health care in Newfoundland and Labrador”. 


This scholarship will be awarded annually to a student from Newfoundland and Labrador entering the doctor of medicine degree program at Memorial University of Newfoundland.  Recipients will have demonstrated leadership and community engagement. The scholarship is renewable for each year of the four-year program provided that recipients demonstrate continued leadership and community engagement by submitting an application with a brief paragraph describing their ongoing activities. Eligible students must be members of the NLMA. The recipient must meet the minimum academic requirements for a scholarship as defined by the University. Applications are available at the Office of Student Affairs, Faculty of Medicine.


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.
