The Morla Milne Memorial Scholarship Fund

staff4ISU invites contributions to an endowed scholarship fund to honor the memory of Morla Milne whose untimely death at age 33 ended a devoted career in support of the University's Space Studies Program.

This fund is intended to support one or more annual scholarship awards to students in the Space Studies Program.  The amount of such awards will be determined each year based on the available proceeds from the endowment.

Donors wishing to support this fund may do so in several different ways:

1. Gifts may be made directly to the endowment fund where they will be held in perpetuity in accordance of the Fund's Agreement of Gift.  Only the annual income from such gifts will be expended on scholarships.
2. Gifts may be made in support of current scholarship awards in which case they will be used no later than the next academic year to make scholarship awards and will not increase the endowment.
3. Gifts may be pledged over several years.  Such gifts whether to the endowment or to support current scholarship awards will permit us to plan on the amount of scholarship assistance available to honor Morla's memory.
4. One creative option combines all of the above and invites donors of $1,000 or more to join the 50-50 Club in Morla's memory.  Here a pledge of at least $1,000 over 5 years would result in 5 annual payment of $200, half of which would be placed in the Morla Milne Memorial Scholarship endowment and half of which would be awarded in current scholarships.

Whatever your choice may be, please help us to honor Morla's memory by making a generous gift to this fund.  If you are already a donor to our Annual Scholarship Appeal, please consider your gift to Morla's fund as an effort over and above your usual generosity.
