He also earned Biology’s Senior Class Award for Teaching Excellence in Biology and Dedication to Undergraduates in 1987. He passed away in 2015.

About the George Hudock Fellowship

This fund is used to support and maintain the George Hudock Biology Fellowship, which is open to Department of Biology graduate students in good academic standing. First preference is given to qualified Master’s candidates and second to Master’s or Doctoral level students in need of summer support or financial assistance for special seminars or training.

This endowed fellowship was established in 1993 by Indiana University alumni, Fern (Hays) and Clifford DeLaCroix. Hudock taught and mentored Mrs. DeLaCroix during her college career, and she wished to honor him for his outstanding teaching ability, support, and guidance.
