Purpose

  • To assist in awarding the annual Featherstone Prize to an outstanding senior graduating from Michigan State University, a person characterized by scholarly excellence, intellectual curiosity, and a commitment to serving others.
  • To increase substantially the existing Featherstone Scholarship and Prize funds.
  • To adopt an ongoing interest in and mentoring relationship with recipients of the Featherstone Scholarship and Prize as well as with such other outstanding students who may be recommended for membership.
