Dr. Martin Nickels Endowed Scholarship Fund for Field School

College of Arts and Sciences Sociology and Anthropology

The Dr. Martin Nickels Endowed Scholarship was established by Wallace Anderson '83 in honor of Dr. Nickels, a former Illinois State University professor whose instruction had produced lifelong personal benefits for Anderson. Martin Nickels was a professor of anthropology at Illinois State University for more than 30 years. He was selected as the Outstanding Teacher at the University in (1991-1992 and 1996-1997.) The purpose of the fund is to provide support to undergraduate students for field experience. The financial goal of the scholarship is to provide significant, potentially decision-altering support to qualified students who wish to spend time learning in a field school. Endowment assets are invested in the Illinois State University Foundation's long-term investment pool.
