Celebration of Scholarships
Atmospheric & Oceanic Science Graduate Student Support Endowed Fund

Scholarship History

Ferdinand Baer, Ph.D. established the the Atmospheric and Oceanic Science Graduate Student Support Endowed Fund in July 2017 to to honor the memory of Karen K. Baer and support merit-based scholarships or fellowships for graduate students in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Science. He was instrumental in persuading the university to establish the Department of Meteorology and became its first chairman in 1987. He remained a full professor until retirement in 2002, then became a professor emeritus. Dr. Baer hopes that this endowed fund will be used to enhance the intellectual abilities of future promising graduate students to the department in their scientific endeavors and contributions to this discipline.
