Marcia L. Storch Scholarship Fund for Undergraduate Women

Before her death from ovarian cancer in 1998, women's healthcare pioneer Marcia Storch, MD, expressed her desire to establish a scholarship fund through the Center for Reproductive Science (CRS) in order to encourage undergraduate women to study the basic physiology and biochemistry of the ovary. Now we invite undergraduate women working in the laboratories of CRS faculty to apply to the Marcia L. Storch Scholarship Fund for financial support of their research up to $1,000. 

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Please contact us with application questions.

Storch, who practiced gynecology in New York City and taught at several medical schools, was widely regarded as an innovator in women's healthcare. She directed the Adolescent Gynecology and Family Planning Clinic at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center, which provided treatment as well as information on birth control and sexually transmitted diseases to tens of thousands of disadvantaged teenagers. After her retirement from private practice in 1989, she sought a wider audience for her approach to medicine as a television and radio producer. She created specialized programming for family physicians on the Lifetime medical network and later became the head of OB-GYN news for the Medical News Network.
