The Baltimore City Medical Society Foundation was established by the members of the Baltimore City Medical Society in 1972 to support philanthropic activities in Baltimore City and to provide scholarships to medical school students who have Baltimore City as their permanent address.
Historically, funds have been contributed by members of Baltimore City Medical Society and other physicians in Baltimore City, their families, and friends. Additional income is received from patients, friends, and families wishing to honor a Society member. In 1991, a separate scholarship program was endowed in the name of the Medical Staff of North Charles General Hospital and Wyman Park Medical Services.
The number and value of awards are determined by the Foundation Board each year depending upon the funds available. Awards are announced by September 1.
All qualifying applicants will be considered. Awards are based on financial need, academic achievement, and personal qualities, which, in the judgment of the Scholarship Committee, demonstrate promise of success in the pursuit of a medical or osteopathic degree. Although there is no pay-back provision in the scholarship program, students are encouraged to return to practice medicine in Baltimore City following completion of their training.
