Angela Páez Scholarship Fund for Minority Students
Gary and Barbara Ames have made a substantial, 10-year pledge to create a student scholarship fund. Named in memory of an exceptional School of Medicine student, Angela Páez, this gift allows the UW School of Medicine to provide financial support to under-represented minorities. The couple’s desire is to make recruiting and retaining the best and brightest students a continuing priority for the School of Medicine. In addition to financial resources, the couple also gives of their time: both Mr. and Mrs. Ames are members of UW Medicine’s Scholarship and Student Support Committee, and Mr. Ames is a past member of the UW Medicine Board of Visitors.
