Wisconsin ME/CFS Association announces Medical Student Scholarship

From Co-Cure:

The WISCONSIN ME/CFS Association announces Medical Student Scholarship (the Friedman Award)

The Wisconsin Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Association (WME/CFSA) is announcing the creation of the Friedman Medical Student Scholarship Award. The purpose of this scholarship is to encourage medical students to learn about ME, CFS, and similar illnesses. In naming this scholarship, our Association is honoring Kenneth Friedman, PhD, who originated the idea of the scholarship and who has successfully spread the idea beyond his own state of New Jersey. Dr. Friedman has also been active in other ways in promoting research and scholarship about ME/CFS.

The Friedman Medical Student Award is open to all students who have completed their first year of medical school in Madison, Wisconsin, are enrolled for their second year of medical school, and are in good academic standing. The Friedman Award is not a financial need scholarship.

Students will write an essay answering this year's challenge question about ME/CFS. We hope that the process of writing the essays for this scholarship, and possibly being the winner of it, will contribute to applicants becoming physicians better able to assist and provide compassionate care for patients suffering from ME/CFS and similar, complex illnesses with no known cures.

The winner of the scholarship shall receive a $3,000 award to be applied toward the tuition of his/her second year of medical education. If you have any questions regarding the ME/CFS Medical Student Scholarship application, the WME/CFSA, please contact Pat Fero, MEPD, Executive Director of the Wisconsin ME/CFS Association on (608) 834 1001 or (608) 837 9540.
