The Martin-Peterson Scholars Award recognizes ACOG Young Physician members pursuing global health careers for their involvement in a global women’s health project or program with a clinical, advocacy, or educational focus. In addition to providing recognition of early career accomplishments, this award will identify potential future leaders in global women's health.

The selected District IV winner will receive $500 to attend either the ACOG Annual Clinical and Scientific Meeting (ACSM) or District IV Annual District Meeting in 2022. In addition, the winner will be submitted to ACOG National along with winners from every other district, and two National winners will receive complementary registration for the 2022 ACSM and $2,000 to support travel and related expenses for attendance.
