Milka Mukhlova Montiel received her MD degree from the Higher Institute of Medicine, “Vulko Tchervenkov”, Sofia, Bulgaria in 1953. She was recruited to The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio as an Associate Professor in 1973, and began her work here as Medical Director of the Blood Bank, Hematology and Coagulation Laboratory.  Dr. Montiel was a leader in the development of the pathology services at University Hospital and the UT Health San Antonio Department of Pathology labs. She was greatly respected by her peers and carried a heavy teaching load, had major service commitment, and also conducted basic research.  

It was Dr. Montiel’s desire to establish the Milka M. Montiel, M.D. Endowed Scholarship to support medical students who shared her experience of being an immigrant to the United States. Funds distributed from the endowment shall be used to support student scholarships within the School of Medicine. Funds distributed from the endowment shall be used to support student scholarships within the School of Medicine.  Preference will be given to students who are immigrants or who are first or second generation from immigrant families. Recipients of this scholarship are encouraged to contribute back to the corpus of the endowment in future years to perpetuate the growth of the endowment and to support future generations. As a requirement of this agreement, every recipient will receive a letter from Dr. Montiel that explains the importance and urgency of students contributing back to this endowment to provide enriched and more substantial support for future generations of physicians.
