Dean William F. Schmeltz Scholarship
The Andrews Family Trust established the Dean William F. Schmeltz
Scholarship in 2010 to honor Dean Schmeltz for his leadership in the development of the
Allen W. and Carol M. Schmidthorst College of Business at Bowling Green State University. The Andrews Family
Trust wishes to honor Dean Schmeltz in this way because of his support of Dr. Charles Andrews
when he was returning to complete his graduate degree. Dr. Andrews had significant
commitments outside of the classroom as he was married and raising four children. Because of
this support, Dr. Andrews was able to go on to complete his Ph.D. and have a very successful
academic career. Dr. Andrews’ career was truly inspired by Dean Schmeltz.
