The Dr. Max and Ida L. Millman Foundation and the Hampden District Medical Society Scholarship/Loan Fund

In June 1976, shortly after the sudden and unexpected death of Dr. Max Millman, at that time editor of the Hampden Hippocrat and at the instigation of Mrs. Max Millman, the Society established the scholarship fund as a tribute to the late Dr. Millman. Dr. Millman was a prominent internist and pioneer cardiologist beloved and respected by his colleagues and patients.

Contributions to the fund were received from his many friends and colleagues both in the community and in the Hampden District Medical Society. His wife, Ida L. Millman, contributed $25,000 to the fund, the interest of which was to be used for the annual scholarships awarded to applicants in medical school from Hampden County. Contributions to the fund can be used for memorials and in celebration of events by contacting the district society office.

Every September, two to three $2,000 scholarships are issued.

Eligibility:

  • Applicant will be accepted or enrolled to an accredited medical school or osteopathic medical school. Scholarship/loan is available to freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors and attendings
  • Applicant’s family must be a resident of Hampden County

Due to the cost of the high burden of medical school debt, the Dr. Max & Ida Millman Foundation Scholarship Fund has a new loan program providing forgiveness of paying back the scholarship/loan. The loan forgiveness only applies when upon completion of medical studies, the recipient returns to Western Massachusetts to practice medicine for 1 year.

If the recipient chooses to work in another state, the scholarship/ loan must be paid back. The scholarship/loan is given at 0% interest and must be repaid after residency and specialty training is completed and the physician has been in practice for three years. Three or four $2,000 scholarships are awarded each year. The deadline for applications is September 1.

For more information, questions and to obtain an application, please contact Coni Fedora at hampdendistrictmedicalsociety@gmail.com.
