Thank you to all who have helped establish the Dr. Deborah Turner Legacy of Heroines scholarship, with special thanks to Dianne Bystrom, Catt Center director emerita, who spearheaded this fundraising campaign.

The initial goal of raising at least $12,500 in pledges to create an expendable fund account has been surpassed by more than $3,500, and the Iowa State University Foundation has established a landing page where anyone interested in supporting the scholarship can donate online:

Donations also can be made by mailing a check to the Iowa State University Foundation, 2505 University Blvd, P.O. Box 2230, Ames, IA 50010-2230. If mailing a check, please include one of the following with your check: Fund ID #2706980, a note referencing the Dr. Deborah Turner Legacy of Heroines scholarship, or a completed gift form.

The first Dr. Deborah Turner Legacy of Heroines scholarship will be awarded next spring for the 2025-2026 academic year to a full-time undergraduate student in the pre-medicine or pre-health professional track with a demonstrated financial need.

The Catt Center is pleased to honor Dr. Turner – a proud Iowa State alumna, national president of the League of Women Voters, and strong advocate for voting rights and women’s rights – and to help support Iowa State University students with another scholarship in the Legacy of Heroines scholarship program.
