The Indiana Pest Management Association Memorial Scholarship
A memorial was established in 1986 to honor association members who have served their industry well. An endowment fund was set up with the income to be used to provide scholarships to young men and women attending Purdue University.
Excerpts from the Agreement follows: The Donor (Donor = Indiana Pest Management Association) and/or others may from time to time, by gift, by bequest, or otherwise, make additional gifts to the University to be added to the endowment fund.
The University accepts such gifts and agrees to hold and to manage, control, invest, reinvest, and to use the net income therefrom for the establishment, support and maintenance of one or more annual scholarships to students enrolled at Purdue University who have demonstrated academic proficiency and have shown a high degree of interest in pursuing a career in the field of entomology or structural pest control. It is the intent to fund an annual award to such a student attending or planning to attend Purdue University. Any Award shall be announced at, and the Award recipient formally recognized at, the annual Purdue University Pest Control Conference.
Decisions as to who shall receive this award shall be made by the Purdue Department of Entomology. A panel consisting of the Conference Chairman and two other faculty members will review the candidates and recommend an appropriate person to the Department Head. The latter shall have the right to make the final decision as to the recipient.
