Franklin College ScholarshipsApplication DeadlineApplication Form(s)
Belisle Award for Field Biology Researchrollingapplication
The Belisle Award was established by Ms. Amy Belisle ’98 to encourage and assist promising Franklin College biology students to pursue field biology projects under the direction and supervision of their faculty members.
Betty Freeborn Award for Undergrad Science Researchapplication
In 2009 the Betty Freeborn Award for Undergraduate Science Research was established. It is the first of its kind at Franklin College, and was set up to help science students with funding for undergraduate research projects. The endowment comes from alumna Betty Freeborn, class of 1963. Freeborn graduated with a degree in biology. She was a member of Alpha Honorary Society and Zeta Tau Alpha sorority. Freeborn has worked in various lab positions at Yale University throughout her career. She has prepared ribosome samples for Dr. Peter Moore and Dr. Thomas Steitz (a 2009 Noble Prize recipient) on a project to determine the structure of Haloarcula 50S ribosome by X-ray diffraction. Freeborn was awarded the Franklin College Alumni Citation in 2006 for her distinguished career and her loyalty to her alma mater.
Doreen W. St. Clair Endowed Scholarshipapplication
This scholarship was established in honor of Doreen St. Clair’s incredible commitment and contribution to the FranklinCollege community as a professor and friend. Her commitment to student education and development began the day she arrived on campus and continues into retirement. While Doreen has been a leader and experienced achievements in a wide variety of professional organizations, this scholarship is in recognition of the significant positive impact and influence she has made on Franklin College students’ lives. That impact not only touched the student but also their families and friends and continues well beyond the Franklin College academic years. She continues to be sought out by those students for her professional expertise, her wise and ethical counsel and her friendship. She has led, by example, both professionally and personally. Her teaching always extended well beyond the classroom and her department.
Pre-Med Scholarshipsapplication
The Natural Science Division has a number of small pre-medical scholarships that it awards to returning students. These scholarships include the Deppe, Ritteman, Hibbs, and Province scholarships.
Professor Charles A. Deppe Pre-Medical Endowed Scholarship
This award was established by the family of Professor Charles A. Deppe, a long-time professor of biology at Franklin College. Professor Deppe also served from 1911-1949 as pre-medical adviser.
The Charles A. Deppe Pre-Medical Scholarship is to be awarded to a pre-medical student in at least his or her sophomore year. This student must have already earned a scholastic “3” average or better and must maintain the same scholastic standing in order to retain the award.
Dr. George W. Ritteman Endowed Scholarship
Dr. George W. Ritteman was a radiologist at Johnson County Hospital (now Johnson Memorial Hospital) from 1957 until his retirement. Dr. Ritteman is credited with having planned the first X-ray department at the hospital in Franklin. Previously he had been chief radiologist at Bartholomew County Hospital. A World War II veteran, Dr. Ritteman served over five years in the U.S. Army, retiring with the rank of Colonel. Following his death, his widow, Anne Ritteman, established this scholarship at Franklin College in his memory.
The Dr. George W. Ritteman Endowed Scholarship is awarded to students pursing a pre-medical course of study at Franklin College. The pre-med adviser works with the financial aid office to select recipients.
William & Ruth Kerlin Hibbs Pre-Medical Scholarship
In 1915, William Hibbs became Franklin College’s first pre-medical graduate. Four years later, he graduated from Rush Medical College in Chicago. Dr. Hibbs served as medical director of the Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke Medical Center in Chicago for 45 years. After his retirement, he returned to Franklin where he served as medical director for the Indiana Masonic Home. He and his wife, Ruth Kerlin Hibbs, were loyal supporters of Franklin College. Dr. Hibbs was a member of the board of trustees from 1952-1979. The William and Ruth Kerlin Hibbs Pre-Medical Scholarship honors his long and distinguished career.
The William and Ruth Kerlin Hibbs Pre-Medical Scholarship is presented to students following a pre-med course of study. The pre-med adviser selects recipients.
William D. Province Endowed Scholarship
A 1932 graduate of Franklin College, Dr. William D. Province was not only loved and respected by his alma mater, but by the city of Franklin and the medical community as well. His family’s medical practice, established in 1906 and still operating today, is the oldest in the state of Indiana. Dr. Province specialized in the treatment of tuberculosis and was president of the Johnson County Tuberculosis Association for 16 years. He was a member of the National Tuberculosis Board for 22 years. In Franklin, Dr. Province was city health officer and organized and served as chair of the Johnson County Board of Health. He was also a member of the Indiana State Board of Health. While a student at Franklin College, Dr. Province was president of Phi Delta Theta fraternity and of his senior class. He served the college as president of the alumni association from 1946 to 1948 and was a member of the college’s board of trustees for 11 years. He was awarded an Alumni Citation in 1970.
The William D. Province Endowed Scholarship is awarded annually to a pre-med or pre-professional student in the healthcare field. Recipients are selected by the financial aid office.
