The Dr. and Mrs. Pieter S. Dubbelday Scholarship Endowment in Physics celebrates Dubbelday’s career and scientific achievements
MELBOURNE, FL. — Establishment of an endowment is a wonderful way to honor a mentor, professor or family member. Recently an anonymous donor created an endowment fund to honor Dr. and Mrs. Pieter S. Dubbelday and to provide scholarships for current students. Dr. Dubbelday, third from right in departmental photo at right, taught Physics and Oceanography at Florida Tech from 1961 to 1981. As a professor, he was known for his intellect, integrity, and dedication to students which earned him the FIT Teacher of the Year in 1980 at the annual award ceremony staged by the Student Government Association. The first Dr. and Mrs. Pieter S. Dubbelday Scholarship award will be made in 2016. FIT alumni, colleagues and friends of the Dubbeldays are invited to contribute to the scholarship fund and are encouraged to contact Jeffrey T. Spoeri, Director of Development, at (321) 674-6162 or email email@example.com.
