Paul Ellsworth Scholarship Fund

Thank you for your gift in memory of Lieutenant Colonel Paul D. Ellsworth USA (Ret).

Our beloved Health Science Center colleague, Paul D. Ellsworth, passed away on October 6, 2016, at the age of 75.  Paul was a graduate of the University of Florida and received a Master of Public Health from the University of Hawaii before serving as a distinguished U.S. Army Occupational Therapist. He then joined the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio family as an Associate Professor in Occupational Therapy, retiring in 1998. Paul was an exemplary faculty member in his service to the mission of the Health Science Center. 

Paul will always be treasured as a leader who profoundly impacted not only the Occupational Therapy program and fellow faculty but also the lives of innumerous student scholars.  Through Paul’s steadfast support of his students throughout the years, he earned the highest level of respect and trust from students, faculty and colleagues alike.  In 2009, the significant contributions from friends, former students and colleagues were made in honor of Paul Ellsworth to establish the Paul D. Ellsworth Endowed Scholarship in Occupational Therapy.

“I am inspired by your example, and I hope to continue to enhance the profession.  I cannot express my gratitude to you enough, and I hope to continue your legacy and improve occupational therapy daily.”  said Jennifer Otley, , M.O.T., Class of 2015, OTR, 2015 Ellsworth Scholar 

After retirement from the Health Science Center, Paul continued to contribute to his community in several ways including working as a special education substitute, serving as a Docent at the San Antonio Zoo, and by being an active member of his Church, St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church. He will be remembered for his deep love and devotion to his family, friends, and students.  He will be sorely missed by his family, friends, and the Health Science Center community.
