In 1998, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center received a generous grant from the Charlotte R. Schmidlapp Trust that was used to develop a Scholars Program to promote academic advancement of women faculty. To date, 19 women have been selected as Schmidlapp Scholars. This program has promoted career advancement not only of the awardees, but also of the applicants. The program has included individual mentorship to all applicants and feedback to their division directors and the chairman of the department. The program has helped create an attractive environment for recruitment of women faculty at all ranks, with the number of women increasing from 58 (30 percent) in 1996 to 270 (44 percent) in 2012.
In April 2005, Cincinnati Children’s received a $1.5 million grant from the Charlotte R. Schmidlapp Foundation of Fifth Third Bank for a new program to support the career development of women in academic pediatrics. The goals of the Charlotte R. Schmidlapp Center for Career Development of Women in Academic Pediatrics are to enhance career development of women coming from a broad range of backgrounds and ultimately to become a national model for career development of women in academic medicine.
The specific objectives of this center are to:
In 2010 and 2011, through the generous support of the Charlotte R. Schmidlapp Foundation, a permanent endowment was set up to support the Schmidlapp Women Scholars Program. The foundation has given $2 million to fully support the Scholars Program into the future.
