About the Scholarship
Dr. Paul Rodgers was vice president of Limno-Tech, a long-time Great Lakes researcher and active supporter of IAGLR who was tragically killed in a helicopter accident while investigating a toxic chemical spill in Ohio.
At IAGLR's 1999 Annual Meeting at Case Western Reserve University, Paul Freedman, president of Limno-Tech, established the Paul W. Rodgers Scholarship with a pledge of $10,000 from his firm and employees.
"This scholarship is a great way to honor Dr. Paul Rodgers' legacy by supporting the next generation of Great Lakes scientists," Freedman noted.
The first Paul W. Rodgers Scholarship was awarded in 2000 at IAGLR's annual conference in Cornwall, Ontario. Many IAGLR members worked with Dr. Rodgers and shared a friendship with him.
