Preference given to Native American students

Established in 2005 with funds from the Estate of William Carter Lowe, MD, Class of 1957 (deceased in 2004). Scholarships are provided on the basis of financial need, with preference given to North American Indian students. Dr. Lowe spent a good deal of his professional life on Indian reservations caring for Native American Indians. He felt they had been terribly abused and he wanted in his own way to help rectify that. Even after retirement, he spent the majority of his time volunteering both on the Indian reservations and in the community where he lived in Kalamazoo, Mich.  He was well-loved as a physician and greatly admired and respected for his volunteer work and for his care of the Native American Indians.
