Department of Health Professions
Dr. Linda B. White Endowed Scholarship
(This scholarship is for Integrative Health Care (IHC) Students only)
The fund is established to encourage the pursuit of graduate level education among students in the Integrative Health Care Program (IHC), or a substantially identical program known by a different name, by offering financial assistance to those students in the IHP program with plans to pursue a master’s degree or doctorate after graduation.
From 2004 to 2014, Linda B. White, M.D. taught in the IHC Program. She developed the following classes: Botanical Pharmacology, Herbal Medicine, Stress and Sleep Science, and Writing for the Health Professions. She also revised Physiology of Aging and Holistic Pediatrics. She wrote a textbook now used in Dynamics of Health (Health Now: An Integrative Approach to Personal Health). Her magazine articles and books she coauthored (Kids, Herbs, and Health and The Herbal Drugstore) have been used as required reading in other courses. Her husband, Charles White, is an attorney with a strong interest in integrative medicine.
Jeremy Jie Bird Casey, D.O. and Annaliese Marie Stone, D.O. are Metropolitan State University of Denver Alumni. Both majored in what was then called Integrative Therapeutic Practices (ITP). In 2009, they fell in love on an independent study abroad program studying traditional Chinese medicine in Xianyang, China. In 2011, Jie won the President’s Award and was class Valedictorian. That year, the couple married and began medical school at Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Parker, CO. They graduated in 2015 and moved to Ellensburg, Washington to begin their family medicine residency.
While at MSU Denver, Dr. Casey and Dr. Stone received several scholarships. Their appreciation for that financial support, belief in the IHC Program, and passion for health care led them to establish this scholarship in 2014; an act that coincided with the Whites’ own desire to establish an endowment for the same purposes.
Selection: The recipient(s) shall be selected by the IHC Program (or a substantially identical program known by a different name) at MSU Denver with input from the Donors if they desire.
Intent: The intent of this scholarship is to provide one year of tuition and fees for the recipient/s (fall and spring semesters.) Excess funds may be awarded to another student as a partial scholarship. A junior level recipient may apply to receive the scholarship again for his/her senior year.
If the department fails to meet the established deadline, then final selection of candidates to be awarded (and selection of alternates) scholarships will revert to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships at Metropolitan State University of Denver.
