David & Elizabeth Waldorf Endowed Scholarships

Dr. Elizabeth Waldorf and the late Dr. David Waldorf both shared a passion for environmental conservation. David, a physicist and native of Montana, and Elizabeth, a zoologist and Mississippi native, received doctoral degrees from Ohio State University. After postdoctoral research at the University of Nottingham in England, they conducted research and taught at LSU, Lasell College, Northeastern University and Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College (MGCCC). David and Elizabeth retired from the MGCCC Jeff Davis Campus in Gulfport in 2002 and 2003, respectively. Continuing to uphold their passion, the Waldorfs chose to invest in environmental science scholarships at MSU to help students attain educational backgrounds that will aid them in fighting the critical environmental issues we face today.

Awarding up to six undergraduate scholarships each year ranging in value from $1,000 to $4,000, the Waldorfs’ generosity encourages students studying environmental science to become environmental science scholars with a commitment to protect and preserve the Earth.
