Edwin Flittie was head of the Sociology Department for 15 years. The Flittie Scholarship Fund was established by Audie Blevins and Kathy Jensen after Flittie's death in 1987. As a testament to the long-term influence of a teacher, students of Ed Flittie are still contributing to this fund. We are proud to report that this fund has reached endowment level. Consequently, the principal is protected and scholarships are now funded solely through investment returns. Thus the fund will be available in perpetuity for the purpose of awarding scholarships to our top students.

Application deadline: March 15th, 2022
