Scholarship immediately helps 44 students

Wednesday, March 1, 2006

An SCSU alumnus who devoted his career to education has directly shared that devotion with 44 students since he endowed a scholarship last November.

Clarence Fogelstrom, Washington, D.C., graduated with a teaching degree in 1956, after which he worked in curriculum development for the Children's Television Workshop, including Sesame Street and the Electric Company, during its formative years, and then was a grants officer for the U.S. Department of Education for 10 years before his retirement.

In the short time since Fogelstrom made his gift of $100,000, 44 students have received scholarships, and scholarship applications for the 2006-2007 school year are being reviewed.  In addition, a portion of the donation will establish the Clarence Fogelstrom Endowed Scholarship, which will be matched by the University, thereby doubling the amount of his scholarship for the next 20 years.  For more information about establishing an endowed scholarship that qualifies for the University match, call Eric Kautzman at 320-308-4998.
