Dean and Tammy OskvigA recent gift from Dean and Tammy Oskvig of Stilwell, Kan., to the University of Iowa Foundation will establish the Oskvig Global Engineering Scholarship within the UI College of Engineering.

The endowed gift will support one or more annual scholarships for engineering students interested in serving communities in developing countries through work in energy and/or water for a meaningful part of their professional career.

"Dean and Tammy Oskvig's continued investment in the future of the college enables us to continue to improve the quality of our programs and keep the University of Iowa a leader in engineering education," says Alec B.
