John D. Wrasse, M.D. Memorial Scholarship

By IUSM Scholarships and Loans

John Wrasse, IU M.D. '05, was a beloved physician and friend to many, serving pediatric patients in Bloomington and IU School of Medicine students for many years until his sudden passing in 2021. His family and community want his legacy and love of IU to live on in the form of a scholarship.

More Info

The John D. Wrasse, M.D., Memorial Scholarship was created to provide support to nontraditional medical students with preference for a student with interest in practicing pediatrics. This scholarship is endowed and donors' gifts will be invested to create a fund that will last in perpetuity in John's honor.

John was a loving father, husband, and community leader, constantly striving to serve those around him. He was passionate and driven, choosing to pursue a BA in Chemistry and an MD after working at Indiana University for a decade. His example will live to inspire other students who follow in his footsteps. In addition to his work as a pediatrician, John was an avid cyclist and advocated for the proper use of helmets while riding.

Help honor John Wrasse's legacy and support future physicians by making a gift today.
