Richard Pasewark Excellence Fund for Graduate Education

Dr. Richard Pasewark picture  

   We are sorry to announce that our dear friend, Richard
   Pasewark, passed away Friday, February 2 2007. Karen sent us the
   following in an e-mail:

   So many people have been supportive to us during Richard's
   battle with pancreatic cancer, and everyone's calls, cards, letters,
   and thoughts and prayers have been a blessing. I just wanted to
   let you know that Richard died peacefully at home on Friday,
   February 2nd, with his older boys, Mark and Kyle, and I present.


In a recent e-mail from Karen, she expressed her gratitude to everyone who has supported the scholarship fund:

 I haven't done a very good job of thanking individual donors these past few months, but I've been overwhelmed by the generosity of former students, colleagues, friends, and University supporters. I was amazed at the information that, at least in recent history, no other memorial award for a faculty member has passed the $70,000 mark. We're getting close! Richard would be delighted, not so much because of the honor to him (though he'd be flattered!) but because of the benefit to future psychology graduate students.

The Richard Pasewark Excellence in Graduate Education Fund will honor Richard's many contributions to UW graduate education. Richard, more than anyone else, created the graduate program in Clinical Psychology and from that graduate program emerged the UW graduate program in Experimental Psychology.  The fund will be used to support graduate students in the department and may be used for travel stipends, support for seminars or workshops, graduate fellowships, or other activities that promote excellence in graduate education within the department.

We had an initial goal of raising $50,000 because the Wyoming legislature has a matching funds program for amounts equal to or exceeding $50,000. Tom Buchannan, University President approved the Pasewark fund for the legislative matching funds, and we set out to reach that goal. Thanks to the generosity of many people who wanted to honor Richard, we did it. We raised $50,000, by June 30, 2007! In order to fund a yearly graduate fellowship, we need to raise $100,000 in donations, and we have raised our goal to reflect that hope.

We are continuing to graph our progress, but toward our new goal!
