In 1997, after nearly 30 years of service at Case Western Reserve University, Assistant Dean Edward Verhosek retired. Dean Verhosek had an tenure marked by devotion to the rights and concerns of graduate students. When he retired, the GSS struck a committee to oversee the choice of a retirement gift for Dean Verhosek and we met with him to find out what he would like as a remembrance from the students he had helped for so many years.
True to his altruistic form, he suggested that the gift he would appreciate most was a fund named in his honor to assist graduate students financially with expenses encountered in the latter part of their studies. He drafted "Thoughts on the 'V' Fund for Graduate Students" to give us a start on how to make the grants-to-students a reality.
In addition to honoring Dean Verhosek, the V Fund also provides a vehicle for graduate students to be helped by graduate students, and thus provide a salient means for GSS to provide a meaningful service to the graduate student body by providing funds for incidental costs incurred in thesis research that are otherwise usually left to be paid out of pocket by the graduate student.
