Graduate Scholarships

♦  The Gertrude T. Huberty Warren Memorial Scholarship    

     This scholarship was established in memory of Dr. Gertrude Huberty Warren, FWC President 1949-50.  Under her leadership, FWC created the first UCLA Employee Directory that was later adopted as a UCLA publication.  Dr. Huberty, along with Dr. Donald MacKinnon, founded the first UCLA Student Health Department where she served for more than 28 years as the Assistant Director and Professor of Clinical Medicine at the UCLA School of Medicine.  The scholarship honors students studying to enter the medical field as researchers or physicians.    

     This year, the Gertrude T. Huberty Warren Memorial Scholarship was awarded to a physician pursuing her master's degree in an accelerated program in the Department of Epidemiology.  Her research focuses on HIV prevention/risk reduction strategies in adolescents.
