Dubois Memorial Scholarship
In 1967, following the death of Dr. Dubois, Mrs. Dubois and her family established the Dr. Jean T. Dubois Memorial Scholarship to provide scholarships for meritorious students majoring in chemistry. Dr. DuBois, a researcher at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, was very interested in the WSU Chemistry Department in the 1960’s before he was killed in a plane accident. When Mrs. Dubois passed away in 1995, her will provided significant growth to the fund and the fund was re-named the Dr. Jean T. and Phyllis Nussey Dubois Memorial Endowed Scholarship. The scholarship is available to chemistry majors with documented financial need with a 3.0 minimum cumulative GPA.
Edgar Hardy, PhD Chemistry Scholarship
Established 1996 in memory of Edgar Hardy, Ph.D. to provide scholarships for students majoring in Chemistry . Dr Hardy was a founding member of the Board of Trustees of Wright State and served as the Board Chair in 1967. Dr Hardy, after his retirement from Monsanto, where he was Director of Research, served on the WSU Chemistry faculty from July 1977 through June 1980. The stipulations on the Scholarship are quite flexible. The Scholarship is nonrenewable. It should be given primarily based upon academic achievement, not necessarily need. The Scholarship should be used to attract high academically qualified freshman, who will major in Chemistry. If there are not sufficient freshman candidates, the Scholarship may be offered to continuing students.. Each Scholarship's value is a maximum of S2,500/year.
