Medical Staff Society: Dr. Marvin Leder Scholarship

For more then a quarter century, the Medical Staff Society at New York Presbyterian Queens has recognized the hard work of young scholars through the presentation of monetary scholarships. Candidates must be the children of NYPQ employees who are recent high school graduates or who are currently pursuing a college degree.

Applications are reviewed in a blinded process by anonymous judges with no relationship to hospital employees. This process eliminates selection bias and means that award winners can be rightfully proud of their accomplishments.

In 2013, the scholarship was named for former MSS President, Dr. Marvin Leder. Dr. Leder had been a great champion of education and was instrumental in the establishment of the scholarship fund.
