ACMS Foundation

Arlington County Medical Society Foundation is proud to present the ACMS Foundation Scholarship, initiated by our physician members, as a means to give back to the future of medicine – to our students.

The foundation awards a $10,000 scholarship to a local high school senior interested in pursuing higher education studies in medicine or healthcare; we are currently working with Wakefield High School and hope to broaden our support in the future. Our physicians are happy to participate in career days, mentoring and shadowing as we continue to support our local students in their pursuit of a career in the healthcare sector, where the challenges, financial burdens and professional requirements are at the highest levels and where physician shortage continues to threaten future healthcare.

Please consider donating to this worthy cause and help us raise funds for this valuable scholarship as a gift that gives back to our communities and pays it forward – towards the future of healthcare!

Our small nonprofit organization works hard to raise funds throughout the year (Golf and Tennis event, Charity Poker event, silent auctions, etc.); however, it takes a village to reach each $10,000 scholarship goal and we could use your help!

Why Give?

Physician shortage is real and we need physicians from all walks of life – the same goes for healthcare workers. As the pathway to become a healthcare professional is long and difficult both academically and financially, ACMSF scholarships provide young graduates much needed financial support throughout the critical undergraduate years. Currently, we work with Wakefield HS (serving the district with the most diverse, socio-economically challenged students in our county), to encourage those who may otherwise not consider medicine/healthcare as a possible career.

With your help, we hope to expand this program so that more students in our area may benefit from the ACMSF support as they go into one of the most challenging academic/training fields!

Make a Difference

In addition to the ACMSF scholarship, our society strives to work with local schools to encourage seniors to study medicine or healthcare in their future professional pathways. We are happy to coordinate career days with local high schools, as well as shadowing/mentoring with individual doctors or practices. These build real, invaluable connections; many of our own member physicians have also grown up in the area, have returned to live and work in Arlington/DC metro-area and are making a difference in our communities every day!
