Duane Edwards / Arab Pest Control Scholarship
A memorial was established in 1999 to honor Duane Edwards / Arab Pest Control, who served our industry so well. An endowment fund was set up with the income to be used to provide scholarships to young men and women attending Purdue University.
Excerpts from the Agreement follows: The Donor (Donor = friends and family of Duane, Arab Pest Control and the Indiana Pest Management Association) and/or others may from time to time, by gift, by bequest, or otherwise, make additional gifts to the IPMA to be added to the Duane Edwards endowment fund.
The IPMA accepts such gifts and agrees to hold and to manage, control, invest, reinvest, and to use the net income therefrom for the establishment, support and maintenance of one or more annual scholarships to students enrolled at Purdue University who have demonstrated academic proficiency and have shown a high degree of interest in pursuing a career in the field of entomology or structural pest control. It is the intent to fund an annual award to such a student attending or planning to attend Purdue University. Any Award shall be announced at, and the Award recipient formally recognized at, the annual Purdue University Pest Control Conference.
NOTE: There is no application process for this scholarship.
Decisions as to who shall receive this award shall be made by the IPMA Scholarship Committee.
