Landrum Bolling Endowed Scholarship Fund

During Landrum Bolling's tenure at the College, Earlham became nationally known. Bolling carefully cultivated donors, winning the Kresge Foundation grant and securing several gifts from Indianapolis philanthropist Eli Lilly. The new library building was constructed under Bolling's administration. Off-campus and international programs also blossomed under Bolling.

After resigning from the presidency, he was named an Earlham trustee, and developed an international reputation for work in peace and reconciliation.

This scholarship, created in 2010, is to be awarded students with demonstrated financial need. Preference will be given to Jewish, Christian or Muslim students from the Middle East, preferably from the Israel/Palestinian area. In the event that the fund is able to provide multiple scholarships, the College will attempt to provide an equal number of scholarships to students from each religion.

In recognition of its 50th reunion, the Class of 1961 endowed this scholarship in honor of Landrum Bolling.
