Thanks to a unique pair of scholarships by the Chadburn family, more than two dozen pre-medical and pre-dental students have benefited in the College of Science. They are truly making a difference in the education and careers of our students.
The late Richard Chadburn (General Science, '51) and his wife Beverly (Education, ’52) established the Bev and Dick Chadburn Scholarship. Dick Chadburn was a lifelong dentist in Springfield, Ore., for more than 30 years.
Their daughter, Amy Chadburn (Zoology, ’79) created the Amy Chadburn Pre-Medical Scholarship. She used her science degree to become a pathologist, and today works as a physician, researcher, and educator in New York City.
The current Chadburn scholarship winners, senior Honors biology major Stephanie Zhao and junior chemistry major Nick Diaz-Hui, credit the scholarships for their outstanding academic careers. Both Zhao and Diaz-Hui say the Chadburn Scholarships made it possible for them to devote more their time to education, research and transformative extra-curricular experiences.
