F. James and Elizabeth M. Votruba Higher Education Leadership Enrichment Fund

Back to Endowments

This award is open to any doctoral student in good standing in one of the Higher, Adult, and Lifelong Education (HALE) graduate programs planning to pursue a career in higher education administration. The award will go to a single student to support research and/or career enrichment activities not associated with the dissertation. The intent of the award is to enrich the recipient’s understanding of higher education leadership and the role of colleges and universities in the broader society. This fund will provide opportunity for students to engage in activity that they would otherwise not be able to do and that enhances the overall quality of their graduate experience.

About James C. Votruba

This endowment is intended to help educate the next generation of higher education leaders and to deepen their understanding of the role that colleges and universities play in the broader society. It is established by James C. Votruba, a graduate of the higher education administration doctoral program, in honor of his parents, F. James and Elizabeth M. Votruba, both of whom are graduates of MSU. Mr. and Mrs. Votruba were the first in their families to attend college and they had a deep appreciation for the role that higher education can play in advancing both individual and social progress. The Votruba family honors them for their commitment to each other, to their family, and to the values that have enriched their lives and the lives of those around them.
