Purpose

The Edward L. Mockford and Charles F. Thompson Summer Fellowship Endowment supports a fellowship awarded to a graduate student involved in research in the School of Biological Sciences. The Mockford/Thompson Summer Fellowship was created in 2008 by combining monies from two existing funds–the Edward L. Mockford Summer Fellowship Endowment created in 1986 in honor of Mockford’s retirement and the Charles F. and Karen M. Thompson Endowment established in 2007 in honor of Thompson’s retirement. The merged fund was set up at the request of the Beta Lambda Chapter of Phi Sigma and with permission of all donors. The assets of this endowment are invested in the Illinois State University Endowment Investment Pool.
