Paul E. Klinge Scholarships — 2014 Competition

This scholarship is made available by the gifts of many friends of Professor Paul Klinge, a former Indiana University faculty member and administrator.  Professor Klinge served as Assistant to The President in the administrations of several Presidents, including President Herman B Wells.

Prof Klinge, previously a high school biology teacher, had a keen interest in furthering the career preparation of students planning to become science teachers and of those entering other science careers.  For many years he directed programs at Indiana University dedicated to helping students as they explored science career opportunities.

The following three scholarship competitions are offered in Professor Klinge’s memory.

 

For Undergraduates Planning To Be Science Teachers

Eligibility: Recipients must have completed their Sophomore Year, and have committed to a career in science teaching.  Scholarship recipients must be planning to enter either their Junior or Senior Year at Indiana University, Bloomington, in the Fall Semester 2014, and must be maintaining at least a cumulative Indiana University GPA of 3.5 in all classes taken at the time of application. Awardees will be selected based upon academic and professional recommendation criteria. Financial need will become a selection factor only in the event of a tie with another finalist. The receipt of a Klinge Scholarship last year will not disqualify the recipient from being eligible to receive a second-year scholarship.
