Cody Medical Foundation Scholarships


The Cody Medical Foundation will award four (4) individual $1000 scholarships to four graduating high school seniors from Cody or Meeteetse, Wyoming. Students apply for this scholarship through their high school counseling offices.  Students can re-apply each year during university for the scholarship. After their freshman year, they should provide a transcript and application to the CMF Scholarship Committee.

During university senior year, only students that major in pre-med with plans to become a physician will qualify for the scholarship. The senior year students need to be enrolled in a university that has a pre-med course of study.

When the students are accepted in an approved physician degree program, the committee will choose ONE student (from the original four students) who will receive $5000.00 each year for three years. The student will have to reapply to the CMF Scholarship Committee each year. Upon completion of three years of pre-med study, they will receive a bonus of $1,000.


The annual $1000 medically related scholarship grants are due August 10th each year. Applications are available at To qualify , students need to have completed one year of college as a full-time student. Their parents must reside in the West Park Hospital District which includes the towns of Cody and Meeteetse. Applicants need to major in a medically related field.
