Paul E. Klinge Scholarships
These scholarships are 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.  There are three scholarship competitions offered in Professor Klinge’s memory (see below). Application Material and Procedure: Application materials for each of the competitions can be obtained from the Undergraduate Recruitment and Professional Community Office, Indiana University School of Education, Bloomington.  Requests may be made by calling 812-856-8578, or by e-mail at kpaulin@indiana.edu.
