FORT WORTH – Texas â?? The Wayne O. Stockseth Endowed Scholarship was established with a seed gift of $100,000 to the University of North Texas Health Science Center/Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine Foundation by Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Stockseth.

The endowed scholarship is for medical students of the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine (TCOM), the medical school component of the UNT Health Science Center at Fort Worth. The scholarship will be enhanced through solicitation of additional gifts from TCOM alumni who have received Stockseth scholarships in the past.

The endowed scholarship continues a two decade tradition of giving to the UNT Health Science Center by Stockseth and his wife, Norma Lee. The Stockseths have shown their support of the UNT Health Science Center in previous years through an annual scholarship gift of $1,000 to a UNT Health Science Center medical student and the gift of a Rolex watch to a graduating senior who has shown outstanding achievement in osteopathic manipulative medicine.

â??As a member of the UNT Health Science Centerâ??s Board of Trustees in the 1970s and as chairman of the University of North Texas Board of Regents in the 1980s, Wayne Stockseth has made significant contributions of leadership to the health science center,â? said Dr. Benjamin Cohen, interim president of the UNT Health Science Center. â??His generous offering will create continuous opportunities for our medical students.â?
