Arden Anderson Scholarship Fund

Scholarships are made possible thanks to the late Arden Anderson, MD (1926-2004) a family physician from Brainerd, MN, who served as MAFP President from 1972-1973 as well as Chairman of the AAFP. Dr. Anderson left a generous legacy gift to the MAFP Foundation to be used to support scholarships for future family physicians, specifically those intending to practice in Minnesota.

The MAFP Foundation will distribute these funds in the coming years as $1,000 individual scholarships to family medicine residents enrolled in a Minnesota Family Medicine Residency Program.
