The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology has established a scholarship fund to support an outstanding student with financial need who would like to participate in one of the field biology courses offered by the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at UCLA next year. Friends and family have donated funds for this scholarship fund and the amount and number of awards will depend on the level of giving. Joseph Epperson, Class of 2007, and member of the 2006 Spring Field Biology Quarter, died on October 13, 2007, in an automobile accident. As a major in Ecology, Behavior and Evolution at UCLA, he made many close friends, particularly during the Field Biology quarter, which spent time in the Mojave Desert and Santa Cruz Island.
Anyone who wants to contribute to that fund can do so by going to the Giving page of our website. Please select “Joseph Epperson Memorial Scholarship”. All funds will be added to the scholarship and not put into endowment.
