Central College announces endowed fund for student research

Pella —

At the 2013 commencement ceremony, Central College announced the establishment of the Arthur J. Bosch Endowment for Student Research.
The fund will support students in academic research, intentionally linking students with faculty and alumni partners in collaborative research. The fund will also help place students in real-time research opportunities during their undergraduate experience.
Arthur Bosch, a 1951 alumnus of Central and professor emeritus of chemistry, had a 50-year career and modeled the principle of intellectual and social engagement and advanced best practices for professional collaboration with colleagues and students. Bosch was at the commencement ceremony to commemorate the fund named in his honor.
“One of the most important things we can do is create opportunities for faculty and students to collaborate on significant research projects,” said Mark Putnam, Central College president. “The establishment of the Arthur J. Bosch Endowment for Student Research allows more of these opportunities to occur and at a higher level. We are appreciative of our donors who have supported this initiative and strengthened the relationship between our faculty and students.”
Bosch Scholars will receive a stipend and housing support during the summer to engage in professional research opportunities, have the opportunity to prepare for graduate school or chosen careers while learning research methodology and professional social interaction among peers and develop an initial network of professionals who can serve as lifelong mentors and colleagues.
The endowment will allow Central College students to be more competitive for graduate fellowships and job opportunities in the national and global research and health care fields. The first Bosch Scholars will likely explore science-based research, but as the fund develops students will be chosen from any field.
“There was a sense that Central was missing an arrow from its quiver,” said Don Morrison, director of development and planned giving. “After conversations with alumni, we realized that our students could be landing outstanding research opportunities and internships. The Bosch Endowment will be a great umbrella for student research.”
The Bosch Endowment has more than $333,000 raised, more than half of the $500,000 goal. The funds will be made available to students beginning in the summer of 2014. Donor support of the endowment provides a launch point for other research initiatives and provides a permanent source of funding. To donate to the Arthur J.
