Charles and Audrey Drake Fellowship in Honor of Dr. A.T. Henrici
Dr. Charles H. Drake received his Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota, his major professor and mentor was the great American microbiologist Dr. Arthur T. Henrici. Dr. Drake came to Washington State College and joined the Department of Bacteriology and Public Health. Although he was known for his research interests and roots with Dr. Henrici, Dr. Drake’s overriding essence was his exposure of thousands of students to the wonders of microbiology in his Bacteriology 101 course. He was the quintessential eccentric professor who enlivens the college experience for students and opens their minds, as well as an extraordinarily articulate lecturer which was reflected in his teaching as his course was always filled to capacity.
Established to provide fellowships for pre- and post-doctoral appointees to conduct research requiring field studies in microbial ecology. Funds to support fellowships and/or research needs requiring field studies will be awarded to promising researchers in microbial ecology as well as in other areas (such as in botany, cell biology, ecology, genetics, parasitology, plant pathology, veterinary medicine, zoology, etc.).
Dorthy Dix Jackson Dunker and Halwen A. Dunker Scholarship in Veterinary Medicine
G. Gary and L. Marie Duskin Endowed Scholarship
DVM Class of 2018 Scholarship
We feel strongly that the establishment of such a scholarship would provide similar opportunities as we have been provided throughout our journey to the College of Veterinary Medicine and will continue to be provided as we proceed in studying to join the profession for which we feel so passionate about. We propose that this endowment will become our class gift to the College, and eventually serve as a perpetual award to the veterinary students of Washington State.
