To support medical research and education for the benefit of the health and well-being of all people.


Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, the Foundation is a non-profit public benefit organization.


Applications for scholarships are accepted from students in the medical field from select institutions.


The 2023 Scholarship Awards Dinner took place on November 7, 2023, at the San Francisco Basque Cultural Center. We presented awards to this year’s scholarship winners, heard from guest speaker Professor Emmanuel Mignot, and recognized board member Dr David Blende for his forty years of service to the foundation.

We are proud to celebrate another year spent in pursuit of our mission to support medical research and education. Click here for pictures and more information about this special event.

Congratulations to the 2023 Scholarship Award Recipients!
