Arnold Lelis Memorial Annual Scholarship in Ancient Medieval Studies



Student Type:

New, Continuing

This scholarship was created to support student learning regarding the ancient and/or medieval world. Dr. Arnold Lelis was an artist, musician, avid linguist, nature enthusiast, and historian of the ancient and medieval world. After several decades of making art, music, and reading history, Arnold started college as a non-traditional student, earning a Ph.D. in Medieval History at the University of Minnesota. He loved Wisconsin, and spent the last ten years of his life teaching college-level history courses at the University of Wisconsin (Stevens Point and Green Bay campuses). This scholarship was created in Arnold’s memory by his wife, Heidi Sherman-Lelis. The scholarship is open to UW-Green Bay undergraduates in any major, but they must demonstrate the application of their work to the study of ancient of medieval studies.
