Stanley Joseph Jozwik Endowed Scholarship in Medicine
Doris Williams Jozwik was born in Butte, Mont., and her family moved to Seattle when she was still quite young. She graduated from Franklin High School and later took courses at Seattle Community College.
Mrs. Jozwik’s husband, Stanley Joseph Jozwik, contracted cancer. Because he had received excellent care during a protracted illness, Mrs. Jozwik wished to encourage people to pursue careers in medicine. Accordingly, she made a provision in her will to establish a loan fund for medical students. Mrs. Jozwik also succumbed to cancer and died in April 1990.
In converting this loan fund into an endowed scholarship in 2008, UW Medicine pays tribute to the Jozwiks and honors Mrs. Jozwik’s intention to support medical students at the UW School of Medicine.
