The Dorothy S. Hall
Endowed Scholarship in Physician Assistant Studies

Dorothy S. Hall was an accomplished business woman, philanthropist, and dear friend of the PA Program. She always found time, while raising three daughters, to support and fill several philanthropic positions. She was a devoted Ute Fan and started the Ike Hall Memorial Scholarship Fund for Utah athletics. Later, she started her own Physicians' Assistant scholarship fund. We are forever grateful to this incredible woman for her support of our program.
