The Bud Stude Excellence Award


We are soliciting contributions from past program graduates to fund a $50,000 endowment to honor Dr. E.W. (Bud) Stude. The scholarship will promote ongoing program excellence by providing at least one scholarship each year to student(s) in support of their research and presentations at professional conferences or publication in professional rehabilitation journals. Qualifying students must display a minimum G.P.A. of 3.5 and demonstrate active enthusiasm in the field of research and studies in Rehabilitation Counseling at Fresno State.

As one of the founding faculty of the Rehabilitation Counseling Program, Dr. Stude has been a source of strength and inspiration, making it one of the highest-ranked programs in the country. After 30 years of leadership and service to the program, Dr. Stude retired in 2002.

How You Can Contribute

  • Send a tax deductible contribution for the amount you decide and specify on your check which scholarship you would like to donate to
  • Purchase a life insurance policy with the program as a benefactor
  • Or, as each person is unique, it would be best to meet with you and discuss your personal preference of giving.
