Dr. Thompson saw real meaning and value traveling and exploring the diversity of cultures and places around the world. During his 35-year tenure at Bethany College, he taught on Semester at Sea, chaperoned multiple student trips, and spent a sabbatical in China. The establishment of this scholarship fund is to assist psychology majors in offsetting the cost of Bethany sponsored global experiences.

The goal of this scholarship is $50,000. Donations are accepted by clicking the "donate" button below, or by mailing a check to:
