Dr. Pat and Mary Martha Oles Endowed Scholarship
The Dr. Pat and Mary Martha Oles Endowed Scholarship was established by the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System on March 3, 2016, to benefit Dell Medical School. Gift funds were provided by Mr. C. Patrick Oles, Jr. and Mrs. Julie J. Oles. The scholarship honors Dr. Charles Patrick Oles, Sr. and Mrs. Mary M. Oles.
Every member of the Dell Medical School inaugural class of 50 students received scholarship support through unprecedented community support. Patrick and Julie Oles responded to the Dell Medical First Class initiative by funding a scholarship named for Patrick’s father.
This extraordinary gift will initially support one student throughout their undergraduate medical education, and allows for awards to other students should funds provide for greater distribution over time. First preference will go to students with financial need who have resided or matriculated in the Texas panhandle region. Second preference will go to a graduate from UT Austin.
Julie and Patrick Oles devote themselves with outstanding energy to the UT community, beginning with the littlest Longhorns in the UT Elementary School. Patrick is the past Chairman of the Development Advisory Board and of the Chancellor’s Council Executive Committee, both positions of significant trust in which he has served with distinction. Julie and Patrick Oles make dreams come true for our students at every stage of their learning.
