The Midwives Memorial Fund

Learn about this ATM exclusive scholarship

History/Purpose

This fund was originally established in memory of Paulette Griffin, a committed member of the Association of Texas Midwives Education Committee. Her love for the education of midwives inspired all those who knew her. When she died in 2004 the  ATM Board established this fund in her honor so that her loving and generous spirit would never be forgotten. Over the years as some of our sister midwives have passed the fund was renamed The Midwives Memorial Fund. Our hope is that students will utilize this fund to be able to continue their education and become midwives of the future, midwives that will stand out and shine the way our sister midwives of the past have. 

 

Purpose:

This fund is to provide temporary assistance to an established ATM MTP student so that the candidate's studies do not need to be postponed due to financial hardship. The Education Committee will be able to consider more than one applicant per workshop. The amount of assistance is to be determined at the discretion of the Education Committee.

Eligibility:

  • Must be a currently enrolled student with the ATM MTP
  • Must have completed at least the 2nd module of the program
  • The candidate must write a letter to the Education Committee stating the reasons for the need of financial help
  • A supporting letter from apprentice's preceptor is required

Restrictions:

  • The same student may apply for no more than two modules, and must apply fully each time.
  • No discrimination as to race or sex will be accepted.
