History and Purpose:

Carl Fuglie was raised in Riverside. He graduated with highest honors from UCR in 1961 with a degree in Zoology and went on to medical school at UCLA. He did his residency in pathology at the University of Colorado Medical School, then he returned to private practice in Los Angeles. His untimely death from cancer in November 1977 shortened the career of a brilliant young physician.

Carl Fuglie attended local elementary schools and high school here in Riverside where he had an interest in academics and athletics. He matriculated at UCR in the Fall of 1957. While a student at UCR, he majored in Zoology with the objective of going on to medical school. As a student, he participated in the Marquis Social Club and was a member of the Letterman's Club. He was also a member of the football team during the years that he attended UCR. He graduated from UCR in June 1961 with highest honors. He received the Watkins Award for the most outstanding male student in that particular graduating class.

In 1978, Dr. Fuglie's family, friends, and colleagues, in particular, Dick Small and John "Fred" Bryant, DDS, established the Carl Fuglie Memorial Scholarship for an outstanding UCR medical student. The award, the highest honor given to a medical student, is presented at an end-of-the year party in spring.

Selection and Guidelines:
