The Violet Zuvela Primary Care IM Scholarship award was created in 2017 by the generosity of the late Violet Zuvela, who was a patient of Dr. Douglas Paauw, director of Medicine Student Programs.  

Violet graduated in 1972 from the University of Washington with a bachelor’s degree in French and worked at the University of Washington Medical Center as a budget analyst, retiring in 1992. 

She was known for her love and support of young people, and famous for her annual Halloween decor.
