Margaret Vanderwilt Lunsford, an anesthesiologist whose career spanned more than three decades, created the Margaret Vanderwilt Lunsford Scholarship Fund through the UI Center for Advancement (formerly known as the University of Iowa Foundation) in 1985. The fund was endowed in the 1990s following her death.

In addition to the Margaret V. Lunsford Awards, the Department of Anesthesia and the UI Center for Advancement have worked together to provide each of our externs a $1,000 Lunsford Scholarship, which will be applied to their respective tuition accounts.
