Previously the Michael P. Wiggins, MD Memorial Scholarship, the NCMS Legacy Scholarship is an unrestricted $5,000 scholarship awarded annually to a graduate of a Larimer or Weld County high school who has been accepted to or who is enrolled in medical school.

The scholarship honors members of the Northern Colorado Medical Society (or the Weld County or Larimer County medical societies) who have passed away.


  1. An applicant must be a graduate of a Larimer or Weld county high school, or if home schooled, must have graduated while living in Larimer or Weld county.
  2. An applicant must be accepted to a medical or osteopathic medical school or be currently attending medical school.
  3. Application materials (a cover letter and CV/resume) must be received by Sept. 1, 2018. Scholarship payment will be made by January 2019 and the awardee will be invited to the NCMS annual meeting in January. (Attendance is not required for the award.)

The NCMS Executive Committee will screen the applicants for selection. To apply, send a cover letter describing your aspirations in medicine and your CV/resume by e-mail to or by mail to:
