Glenn and Dorothy Dumke Fellowships

The Glenn and Dorothy Dumke Fellowship was established in memory of Dr. Glenn S. Dumke, Chancellor of the California State University from 1962 to 1982. In 1940, Dr. Dumke began his 42-year career in higher education as an instructor of history at Occidental College. He went on to become a professor of history and dean of the faculty at Occidental before becoming president of San Francisco State College in 1957. While serving as president, Dr. Dumke was one of the principal architects of the Master Plan for Higher Education in California, which became the blueprint for the State’s higher education system. Under Dr. Dumke’s leadership, the university system made great progress in the breadth and quality of academic programs. The selected scholar is expected to pursue research projects within special CSU library/ archival collections. Amounts and numbers of scholarships are estimates, dependent on funding.
