Student Scholarships

NYC Midwives has sponsored an annual Midwifery Student Scholarship since 2007. Since 2011, three qualified graduating midwifery students have been eligible to each receive a $2,500 scholarship at the May/June meeting. For more information about the scholarship and how to apply, download the application for scholarships here: NYCM Student Scholarship Application. The deadline is April 1st of the year in which the student is anticipated to graduate.

The Student Scholarship Committee is pleased to announce that because of a donation from the NYS Fund for Midwifery, four student scholarship will be awarded in 2019! At least 2 of the 4 NYC Midwives Student Scholarships will be for Student Midwives of Color. The generosity of the NYS Fund for Midwifery also enables us to increase each of the scholarships to $3,750.
