WHAT ARE the Hauser-Baick Medical Scholarships?

In 1982 The Hauser Memorial Turst was established by Choong H. Baick, M.D., as a memorial to Roger G. Hauser, M.D., who died prematurely at the highest point of his productive life.

Dr. Hauser was very interested in the learning processes of young people.  As a result, the purpose of this fund is primarily for education with emphasis on students who are committed to medicine as physicians.  Criteria have been established to include local students with good academic standing and a financial need.  Each fall awards are presented and the number of size of the scholarships is based on the interest earnings of the Trust each year.  Donations can be made to the Tustin-Santa Ana Rotary Club Foundation.

The Fund is a legal non-profit organization, incorporated in the State of California and administered by the Tustin-Santa Ana Rotary Club Foundation.  The recipients are students at the UCI School of Medicine and the school assists in finding applicants.

Dr. H. Brian Herdeg, Tustin-Santa Ana Rotarian, is the Chair of the Hauser-Baick Medical Scholarship program.
