This $1000 scholarship has been established by Diane M. Van Duzen to honor the memory of her father, Michael M. Oetken. Although Michael did not graduate from Iowa State University, he had a life-long passion for meteorology.
To be eligible for this scholarship, you must:
- be majoring in meteorology in the Department of Geological and Atmospheric Sciences,
- have junior or senior class standing by Fall 2017, and

All eligible students are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to students who are residents of South East Iowa (defined as South of Interstate 80 and East of Interstate 35). All awards will be for one year, but junior recipients may renew for up to one additional year of junior or senior class standing.
