Franklin alumnus Susan Johnson Davidsen DeVoss established the David M. Davidsen Memorial Scholarship in memory of her husband. Mr. Davidsen had a lifelong interest in education. A native of New York, Mr. Davidsen graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in letters and law. He went on to serve as a senior marketing executive for the educational film division of McGraw-Hill and Columbia Pictures. He died in 1999. Mrs. DeVoss is a member of Franklin College's Class of 1965 and a third-generation member of the Board of Trustees. Following her husband's death, she set up the scholarship in his honor.
The David M. Davidsen Memorial Scholarship is designed to encourage out-of-state students to attend the college. First preference will be given to students from Mr. Davidsen's home state of New York. Second preference will be given to students from Michigan, where Mr. Davidsen attended school. Finally, the scholarship may be granted to students residing outside of Indiana. The scholarship may be renewed each year, if the student maintains a 3.0 GPA. The financial aid office will select the recipients.
