Katzner Graduate Student Research and Professional Development
Fall Semester - November 15
Spring Semester - March 17
The Graduate College is pleased to announce an outstanding funding opportunity for graduate students at BGSU.
Katzner Fund - In early 1998, after 13 years as Vice Provost for Research and Dean of the Graduate College, Dr. Louis Katzner decided to return to what attracted him to higher education in the first place – the study and teaching of philosophy. One of his top priorities during his tenure as the Graduate Dean was to increase the support available to graduate students for conducting research and attending professional meetings. Dr. Katzner organized an initiative through the Development Office called The Campaign for Graduate Student Excellence and he asked that any recognition of his service to the BGSU learning community be in the form of donations to this campaign.
By the time he returned to the faculty during the summer of 1998 over 750 faculty, staff, alumni and friends of Dr. Katzner had pledged their support to build an endowment to support graduate student research and travel at BGSU. The endowment has continued to grow since 1998, with the continued support of individuals committed to maximizing the learning, knowledge and development opportunities of our graduate students.
The Graduate College will coordinate the distribution of funds each year to supplement the cost of graduate student research and professional development activities for graduate students at Bowling Green State University.
We are most grateful to Dr. Louis Katzner, Trustee Professor of Philosophy, for creating this opportunity to invest in the education of our graduate students.
Questions should be directed to Dr. Lisa Chavers (2-0343)
