The David Foster Wallace memorial Restricted Fund

The purpose of the David Foster Wallace Memorial Restricted Fund is to support activities of the Department of English by sponsoring the Wallace Memorial Reading Series, which will bring well-known authors to campus to present a public reading of their work and to interact with students and faculty.

It will also support activities of the Department of English by sponsoring the David Foster Wallace Award. This cash award will honor a graduate or undergraduate student whose writing engages its subject from an original, committed, and humane perspective.

Assets of this endowment are invested in the ISU Endowment Investment Pool.
