Marcia L. Storch Scholarship Fund for Undergraduate Women

Dr. Marcia Storch, who practiced gynecology in New York City and taught at several medical schools, was widely regarded as a pioneer and innovator in women's health care. 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.

Before her death from ovarian cancer in 1998, Dr. Storch expressed her desire to establish a scholarship fund through the Center for Reproductive Science in order to encourage undergraduate women to study the basic physiology and biochemistry of the ovary.

The CRS has established a scholarship fund in the name of Dr. Marcia Storch. We invite applications from undergraduate women working in the laboratories of CRS faculty for funding to support their research with a budget of up to $1,000. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Please contact the CRS with questions.
