Bastyr University Receives More Than $300,000 for Student Scholarship Fund

Bastyr University recently received a generous gift of $319,000 from the estate of Adrienne and Percy Frazier to establish a need-based scholarship fund for students of natural medicine.

The Fraziers lived in Missoula, Mont., and were grateful patients of naturopathic physicians. Mr. Frazier passed away in 2006 at age 94. Adrienne Frazier died in 2011, also at age 94. Mrs. Frazier was passionate about natural medicine; her support of naturopathic and Chinese herbal medicine was significant.

The Fraziers’ gift to Bastyr University will establish scholarships or, if appropriate, make loans for “deserving and needy students” in any area of study. The Frazier estate also funds an endowment for the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Ore.

“The Fraziers’ generosity will help many worthy students achieve their goal of becoming natural medicine practitioners for years to come,” says Bastyr University President Daniel K. Church, PhD. “We are honored that they have chosen to leave such a lasting legacy for our scholars.”

The Bastyr University Scholarship Committee will meet in spring 2015 to determine which student or students will receive financial assistance. Funds from the Percy and Adrienne Frazier Scholarship will then be given out to those selected.
