About the Fred Freeman Staff Scholarship: The Fred E. Freeman Staff Scholarship was established in 1994 with funds willed to the University by Mr. Freeman who retired in 1987 from the position of Associate Director of Personnel after 47 years of service to the University. His generosity continues to enhance the professional development of staff through the Fred E. Freeman Fund by providing tuition reimbursement for post-secondary education, certification, or a college degree.
