Upper Iowa University Assistant Volleyball Coach Kasey Uran and UIU’s Director of Major Gifts Nick Linde completed two marathons in last week – The Phoenix Marathon and the Sheriff’s Boys Ranch Marathon in Live Oak, Fla. – to raise money and awareness for the Clark-Bowen Endowed Scholarship.
The Clark-Bowen Endowed Scholarship Fund honors UIU pioneers Charley Clark and Roger Bowen through scholarships benefiting students at Upper Iowa University.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of UIU’s Correspondence Program, a program that was conceived by UIU President Aldrich Paul, Vice President Charles Clark, and Registrar Roger Bowen during a time that Upper Iowa University looked to diversify its educational model.
Since 1973, Upper Iowa University has seen remarkable growth in the correspondence program, which today includes online, distance learning, and independent study programs that have offered flexible learning to thousands of students worldwide.
To celebrate this historic anniversary, Upper Iowa University will begin an endowment fund to honor two of the creators, Dr. Charles B. Clark and Roger Bowen, with the Clark-Bowen Endowed Scholarship.
This scholarship will be awarded to an academically eligible recipient chosen by the Honors and Awards Committee. The recipient will be eligible to retain the scholarship while learning at Upper Iowa University.
Help us honor these two pioneers in Upper Iowa University’s illustrious history with the creation of a scholarship in their names.
