Sheldon Stryker’s children generously established a graduate scholarship in his honor. We awarded the first of these scholarships in spring 2018, providing much needed research funding to 4 graduate students: Muna Adem, Denise Ambriz, Callie Cleckner, and Vitor Dias. As the scholarship fund grows, we will offer semester- and yearlong fellowships to Sociology graduate students—extending Shel’s many contributions to the department and discipline far into the future.
If Shel’s advising and mentorship made a difference to you during your time at Indiana University, we hope that you will consider a donation to this fund. You can donate directly through the Sociology Department website using the “Give now” button. Select “Sheldon Stryker Graduate Scholarship” from the drop-down menu. Thank you for your support!
