Program Overview
Ralph W. Ellison Memorial Prize

This prize was established in 1994 by the NMF Board of Directors to honor the memory of Ralph W. Ellison. A major American writer of the 20th century, Mr. Ellison's novel, The Invisible Man, awakened both black and white Americans to the problems of racial discrimination. Mr. Ellison felt a deep personal commitment to National Medical Fellowships, Inc. and its mission, as demonstrated by his willingness to co-chair a major fundraising effort on behalf of NMF and the students it serves.


One prize is presented annually; the honor includes a certificate of merit and a $500 stipend. (Not renewable)

The application deadline is March 18, 2005
