Give Now to This Fund

This scholarship was established by Dr. Stephen and Shelley Waters in May of 2014. The Waters are longtime supporters of the University of Florida and the College of Medicine.

Dr. Waters graduated from the University of Florida College of Medicine in 1975, and then went on to complete his residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at UF. Mrs. Waters earned a Master of Arts degree in Spanish from the UF College of Liberal Arts and Sciences in 1974 and a Specialist in Education degree in Educational Leadership from the UF College of Education in 1982.

Dr. and Mrs. Waters chose to establish this scholarship after learning about the need for scholarship support within the College of Medicine. Their scholarship seeks to first help students who have previously applied to medical school, and then gives preference to veterans.

Dr. Waters practiced at The Orthopaedic Institute in Gainesville, FL and retired after a 32-year medical career. He proudly served on the UF College of Medicine’s Alumni Affairs Board and Admissions Committee. His interests beyond medicine included sailing, white water rafting, and flying model helicopters. Mrs. Waters is an active member of the University of Florida Friends of Theatre and Dance and loves the arts.

Dr. Waters passed away in May of 2015. He is survived by Mrs. Waters, who resides in Gainesville, FL. Together they have four children and two grandchildre
