The late Eldon F. Lundquist of Elkhart was a distinguished long-time member of the Indiana legislature. He is remembered especially for his ardent support of higher education in this state. In 1979 his friends established an IU fund in his honor. Since 1985 the income from this fund has been used to make an annual Lundquist Faculty Fellow award. The governing clause from the Instructions for the Administration of the Fund reads as follows.
The award consists of a $5,000 honorarium. Each Lundquist Fellow is expected to present an address at the public ceremony at which his/her successor is announced.
The Senate Academic Personnel Committee, which serves as the selection committee, seeks your nominations of worthy candidates for this award.
