History Scholarships

Donovan and Dorothy Reichenberger History Scholarship
The Donovan and Dorothy Reichenberger History Scholarship was created in 1992 to provide financial assistance to deserving history majors and minors. A veteran of WWII and the Korean War, Reichenberger joined the Northwestern faculty in 1967. After a career in the U. S. Navy he earned his bachelor’s from Northwestern in 1966 and a master’s from Wichita State in 1967. In addition to teaching history courses, he served as chairman and member of various Northwestern faculty committees. Recipients should be at least sophomores with a 3.0 GPA.

S.F. “Sib” Sibley Memorial Scholarship
Provisions for this scholarship were established through memorial contributions of the family and friends of S.F. Sibley at the time of his death in 1994. Through the continued support of Mr. Ron Sibley, son of S.F. Sibley, the scholarship was fully funded in 2000. The family donated several copies of a book Mr. Sibley wrote titled “Hash”, an anthology of articles, poems and prayer which he accumulated from 1935 to 1992. Proceeds from the sale of these books also contributed to this scholarship fund. “Sib” graduated from Northwestern in 1963, and in 1965 joined the faculty in the social science department, later assuming the duties of sports information director. In 1981, he received the outstanding service award from the faculty senate and in 1983 was honored as the John Sheffield Teacher of the Year. Recipients should be Social Science majors that are at least sophomores, with their GPA between 2.5 and 3.0.

Frank K. Wadley Scholarship
Born in 1895 on a farm south of Dallas, Frank Wadley devoted most of his life to education. He received his bachelor’s in business from the University of Texas and his master’s in history from Columbia University. He began teaching in 1924, came to Northwestern in 1935 and retired in that position in 1961. The scholarship was established in 1992 by his wife Garnet and their four children. The recipient of this scholarship must have at least a 3.0 GPA and be a Political Science or History major.
