Gail M. Wilson wanted to establish a permanent legacy to her father, Ellsworth Wilson. She knew that to do so, she would have to make a move that would have a profound impact on students. In 1970, she created the Wilson Scholarship, a four-year award designed to assist incoming medical students throughout their entire medical education at Iowa. Such a generous gift allows students to focus on their studies, rather than be distracted by financial concerns.
Ellsworth Wilson was a graduate of the University of Iowa Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine. Gail established a similar fund at the University of Kansas, the state where she lived most of her life.
Consider this gift a challenge to make the most of your medical education, and encouragement to be a positive influence in someone’s life.
Congratulations on receiving the Wilson Scholarship
