Joachim EIterich Fellowship, launched by "a gift from Dr. G. Joachim "Jock" Elterich to the Campaign for Delaware. The fel- lowship will provide research support to students from abroad who plan to target operations re- search or agriculture economics. When Elterich came to the United States as a Fulbright schol- ar in 1958, he was excited for the opportunity to pursue graduate studies in this country. A native of Germany and a graduate of the University of Cologne, he com- pleted a master's degree at the University of Kentucky in 1960 and went on to earn a Ph.D from Michigan State University in 1964. Elterich returned to the United States in 1967 to teach production management, econo- metrics and farm management at the University of Delaware de- partment of food and resource economics. He never forgot the impetus that started him on his ca- reer path: research fellowship funding. Now a professor emeri- tus of agricultural economics, EI- terich said this fellowship is a way to encourage other graduate stu- dents from foreign countries to come to UD and carry out re- search in agriculture economics. !'This is the college's first en- dowed fellowship funded by an individual," said Joe Bradley, di- rector of development for the col- lege. "Other fellowships at this college are funded by the Long- wood Foundation or by public or university funds. Jock is to be commended for his generosity - he's a very giving person." Also exceptional is the method in which funds for the award are being collected. To reach the ini- tial $50,000 necessary to launch the fellowship, Elterich has of- fered a challenge to his former students: he will match five-to- one each contribution they make to the fund. The call to action is working; with more than half the required principal collected in lit- tle more than a year since the fund was opened in February 1999. "Education is the key to progress and understanding," Ei- terich said. "Students should be drawn to higher education and en- couraged to succeed. I am grateful to be able to nourish graduate studies in this way. The new gen- eration should have opportunities as I did as they get their start." Dr. Thomas Ilvento, acting chair of the department of food and resource economics, said, "We need gifted and dedicated re- searchers in agricultural econom- ics. The competition forthe best is intense and a primary recruiting tool is a graduate fellowship. The Elterich Fellowship gives UD an advantage in recruiting the best."
