Betty Lundeen Memorial 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 continues 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 to provide scholarships, in perpetuity, for students interested in practicing medicine in rural communities. This scholarship will be augmented by a gift from his estate.
