Robert W. and Betty Lundeen Endowed Scholarship
Growing up in rural Oregon, Robert W. Lundeen learned from his civic-minded parents the importance of volunteer work. The retired chairman of the Dow Chemical Co. and his late wife, Betty, embraced that ethic as they worked to increase access to quality health care for residents of rural communities. At UW Medicine, Mr. Lundeen continued his community involvement as a member of UW Medicine’s Scholarship and Student Support Committee and through a number of generous gifts to UW Medicine. He is also a former member of the UW Medicine Campaign Cabinet. Mr. Lundeen has established the Betty Lundeen Memorial Scholarship Fund, now renamed the Robert W. and Betty Lundeen Endowed Scholarship, to provide scholarships, in perpetuity, for students interested in practicing medicine in rural communities. Mr. Lundeen passed away in 2016.
