Applications for 2021 scholarships are now being accepted!
CMDA had its beginning when George Peterson and Kenneth Gieser met at Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago, Illinois in 1931. Both men had been experiencing a sense of loneliness in their Christian walk. The two began meeting regularly for prayer and Scripture reading every Saturday afternoon. Soon other medical students joined the two men, and CMDA was born.
Because CMDA values its healthcare students, we are pleased to announce the Peterson & Gieser Student Scholarship! This new scholarship (up to $500) will cover National Convention registration fees, conference housing and food as well as travel expenses. There will be eight scholarships available per year (two per CMDA region).
Requirements for applying:
- First time attender to National Convention*

- Submit a 500-word essay on a specific topic

Scholarship deadline is February 15. Scholarship winners will be notified by February 28.
