Dr. Richard T. Smith and Jean W. Smith Scholarship Endowment

Give Now to This Fund

The Smith family graciously established the Dr. Richard T. Smith and Jean W. Smith Scholarship Endowment to honor their parents. Dr. Richard T. Smith and Jean Smith’s enduring connection to the College of Medicine began in 1958 when Dr. Smith was recruited to Gainesville to serve as the first chair of the department of pediatrics. During his nearly 50 years as a UF faculty member, Dr. Smith also served as chair of the department of pathology and the department of anatomy and cell biology. Jean Smith’s influence is felt in the University of Florida Medical Guild, which she helped establish shortly after the hospital opened.

This scholarship supports deserving students in the College of Medicine, selected on merit. The Smith family hopes that this scholarship can be used to recruit the highest quality students to the College, with a preference to those who have significant history of servant-leadership, humane perspective, and who demonstrate potential for a career dedicated to empathetic patient care.
