Al Dalmolen Scholarship

Al Dalmolen Scholarship

AlDalmolenThe Albert Dalmolen Memorial Scholarship is awarded on a yearly basis to a junior/senior level student majoring in Political Science (including the pre-law and international security concentrations). Winners of this scholarship display excellence in academics, a devotion to community service, and financial need. Albert "Al" Dalmolen spent nearly 20 years as a professor of Political Science at Mansfield University. Although he retired in 2002 and passed away in January 2004, Al left a powerful legacy as an educator, mentor, and friend dedicated to a love of life and learning. His intense and interdisciplinary study of politics challenged his students to work hard and learn as much as possible. He embodied a strong sense of civic responsibility, community, and family. He continues to be remembered by his many friends, colleagues, and alumni.

AlScholarshipIn making the first scholarship award, President Fran Hendricks also posthumously honored Al in presenting his widow Eve with the Presidential Coin for Excellence (#003). The Scholarship fund was started in early 2014 with the generous support of a matching gift from an anonymous donor. The fund reached its initial $10,000 goal within six months and continues to grow with the support of many other donors. We are grateful to all who have contributed.
