Establishment of Matthews Scholarship 

The scholarship is made possible from a bequest from the estate of Maebess Matthews, a UT Business School graduate who worked for the UT System for 42 years before retiring in 1976. Provisions of her will established three scholarships at UT Austin – one in the College of Nursing, one in the College of Business, and one at the College of Pharmacy. The gift to the College of Pharmacy honors her father, B. Berard Matthews.
