Anna Bartsch-Dunne Scholarship
Anna Bartsch-Dunne had a vision. She was a forward-looking woman who knew the value of planning ahead.
In December 1950, Anna wrote a letter to Dr. Virgil Hancher, who was president of the University of Iowa at that time. (Hancher Auditorium is named for this UI leader.) She told Dr. Hancher that she wished to create a scholarship fund to help students in the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine. She requested that preference be given to students from Burlington, Iowa.
Anna started the fund with railroad bonds and promised to send yearly gifts to support the fund. “I am glad to be able to make this money available to you,” she wrote more than 50 years ago.
Anna’s commitment in 1950 has touched many students. She would be proud that her vision continues to help students of the 21st Century
