Edward N. Brown earned a master’s degree in chemistry from Oberlin College. After graduation, he worked as a research chemist for Dupont on projects involving the development of explosives.
Brown joined the faculty in the Science Department at IUP in 1956. He was a versatile faculty member. During his teaching career here he managed to teach every chemistry course offered at IUP. Like Mr. Heard, Mr. Brown was well respected by both the
faculty and students.
Brown retired in 1971 and died in 1987. At the time of his passing, Mr. Brown’s family and friends established the E.N. Brown Memorial Scholarship Fund in his memory. Ed Brown’s wife, Doris Brown, was particularly instrumental in establishing
the award and made significant monetary contributions to the award fund.
Each year, the Edward N. Brown Memorial Scholarship Steering Committee seeks to choose the applicant who best exemplifies the characteristics which represent Mr. Brown’s life: Achievement, Attitude, and Character.
The award will be credited toward the student’s account at IUP and can be used toward their tuition and/or other expenses during the following academic year. In addition to these funds, the award recipient’s name is engraved on a plaque that hangs in
the Chemistry Department’s display cabinet.
The application is be due by 4:00 p.m. on October 30, 2020 in the Chemistry Department Main Office, 143 Weyandt Hall. Students should also, where necessary, arrange for letters of recommendation to be sent as soon as possible, so that they arrive in the Chemistry Department Office no later than November 3. For awards that require an interview, Dr. Elcesser will contact the students before Thanksgiving recess.
The award amount for 2019–20 is $1,370.
