The Joseph T. Gregory Fellowship
Joe Gregory in December, 1995.
Throughout his teaching career, Joe had a deep interest in supporting the research of graduate students, particularly students interested in the area of vertebrate paleontology. In his will Joe left a bequest to provide support for graduate students in this area. As Joe was retired faculty, his bequest was eligible for a grant from the Chancellor's Challenge matching fund, allowing us to establish The Joseph T. Gregory Fellowship.
The Fellowship will be awarded annually to a graduate student associated with UCMP working in the area of vertebrate paleontology. The fellowship is intended to support field work related to the student's thesis or dissertation research that will result in the addition of material to the museum's research collections.
In the coming months we will be contacting Joe's colleagues, former students and other friends, giving all the opportunity to make a contribution to the fund in Joe's memory. Gifts made by active or retired faculty or staff, by students, and by the surviving spouses or partners of faculty and staff who wish to contribute to this fund will be eligible for the Chancellor's Challenge matching program. For each gift or pledge made, the Chancellor will match the contribution dollar for dollar. There is no minimum amount required.
We are extremely grateful to Joe and to the Gregory family for this generous gift. If you are interested in making a donation to the Joseph T. Gregory Fellowship, please contact Bill Clemens or Judy Scotchmoor.
