Stromsdorfer, Ernest W. Scholarship and Research Endowment

Posted by nitcy | March 29, 2017

The Cao and Wang Families created this endowment to establish a scholarship and research fund in the School of Economic Sciences (“SES”) to honor Professor Ernst (“Ernie”) W. Stromsdorfer for his outstanding contributions to Washington State University. Ernie came to WSU in 1983 as Chairman of the Department of Economics and served more than 18 years as a faculty member and later as associate dean of the College of Business and Economics before retiring in 2002. Boqing Wang and Jian Cao, who came from Mainland China and both graduated from WSU in 1994 with doctorates in economics, are deeply grateful to Ernie, Professor Ron Mittelhammer and other faculty members for the life-changing education they received at WSU.
