Members of the Ferris Emeriti Association Board voted in the fall of 2013 to begin a fundraising campaign to assist needy students at Ferris State University. A scholarship committee was formed, and criteria was determined after consultation with UA&M and feedback from members of the Emeriti Association. The committee is chaired by Professor Emeritus Bob Carter (Optometry). The scholarship will be awarded to deserving undergraduate students by a committee composed of Emeriti Association members.
The fund currently has reached 80% of the goal of $25,000 (as of 7/1/16), which is the required minimum amount to establish an endowment through The Ferris Foundation.
Please consider a gift today to the Ferris Emeriti Association Scholarship Endowment to assist needy students at Ferris State University. Send your check to The Ferris Foundation with "Ferris Emeriti Scholarship Endowment" in the memo to:
