David Opperman Study Abroad Scholarship
The David Opperman Study Abroad Scholarship was established by David’s son, Mark, in memory of his father in order to provide students with what is often a life-changing experience living and studying abroad. “A scholarship to support study abroad seemed like the best means to make an ongoing impact on students’ lives in a way that would honor my father’s work”, related Mark.
Civil Engineering, 1964, 1965
“We decided to direct our scholarship to Civil Engineering because that is the department I graduated from and I feel so much a part of ... We also give to Bioengineering, because we feel this is a great program for the future. The combination of engineering and medicine is a wonderful thing.”
