The Bill and Margie Stadelman Support Fund for the Graduate Program was endowed through a gift by the Stadelman’s. The goal of the Stadelmans was to create a pool of funds that is spent to enhance the graduate program in the department. These funds will allow students to travel to meetings, provide graduate scholarships, and continue to build the academic quality of the graduate program.
Dr. Bill Stadelman, founding inductee of the International Poultry Hall of Fame, believes these funds should be used to bring the best students into the Purdue Food Science Graduate Program. "I was lucky to always have grants that let me send students to meetings. This helped me attract the top quality students that I always had in my labs. I have received a lot of honors and it is, in no small part, due to my students."
Like all endowments, people can add to them as they wish. To add to the Stadelman Endowment, feel free to call the Food Science main office for instructions (765-494-8256) or call Eric Putman with Agriculture Development at 765-494-8672.
