Competition announced for McFarland Academic Freedom Scholarship

May 11, 2010 -- The Arkansas State University chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) announces the competition for the 2010 C.K. and Linda McFarland Academic Freedom Scholarship at ASU. The annual scholarship, worth $1000, is open to all full-time current or summer junior, senior, or graduate students at Arkansas State University. The winner may use the scholarship for spring, summer, or fall 2010 educational expenses at ASU-Jonesboro. The student may have any major, and must have at least a 3.0 overall grade-point average.

Application guidelines and forms are available from department and the Dean's offices in Wilson Hall and from Scholarship Committee chair Dr. Charles Hartwig (, in Wilson Hall 416. Completed applications, which will include a brief essay on the meaning of academic freedom, should be postmarked by June 1, 2010.

The C.K. and Linda McFarland Academic Freedom Scholarship was created by Drs. C.K. and Linda McFarland, who served as faculty members in the ASU Department of History.  After Dr. C.K. McFarland completed 11 years as department Chair in 1982, he held a joint appointment as Professor of History and Management (Industrial Relations) until his retirement in 1997. He served as president of the ASU chapter of the AAUP, and was instrumental in revitalizing the association on both the ASU-Jonesboro campus and state-wide.
