Heuser Research Fund
Raymond and Esther Heuser were well known for their philanthropic efforts in the Peoria community and at Bradley. In 1984 they won the President's Award for "their monumental impact on the University" and "their pioneering role in the establishment of Bradley's scholarship program." The Heuser Research Fund was established in 1985 through the generosity of the Heusers and is jointly administered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the College of Engineering and Technology. Within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences the fund's earnings are equally divided between the Departments of Chemistry and Physics. Some suggested uses for the fund include: stipends for faculty and student research, research related equipment and supplies, publication charges and travel support for technical seminars, workshops and conferences related to research activities.
