Hank Heitowit’s Impact

Hank Heitowit, one of ICPSR’s standout directors from 1981-2007, was instrumental in developing the ICPSR Summer Program into the incredible learning experience it is today.

“It’s no exaggeration to say that Hank’s activities have had important positive effects on the careers and professional development of thousands of students and faculty, across a wide range of disciplines.” - William G. Jacoby, former ICPSR Summer Program Director

Every year, a sizable number of former Summer Program participants want to come back to the Program to strengthen their research capabilities. But, for a variety of reasons, many are unable to do so. Current ICPSR Summer Program Director Saundra Schneider and former Director William Jacoby established the Henry “Hank” Heitowit Scholars Fund to provide financial assistance to deserving summer scholars and to honor Hank’s several decades of devoted service to the Summer Program and its participants.
