Dr. Thomas C. (Tom) Moses Memorial ScholarshipThe Dr. Thomas C. (Tom) Moses Memorial Scholarship fund was established to support finance undergraduates in 2004 following his passing on June 20. In recognition of the special relationship Tom had with his students during his 23 years of service to the Department of Finance at the Eller College of Management, the first scholarship will be awarded Fall 2006.
Tom Moses was a former Finance Department Assistant Head and long-time instructor. "He was a Wildcat through and through, holder of three UA degrees: BBA '69; MS Economics, '71; Ph.D. Economics and Finance, '81; and a full-time member of the Finance department faculty from 1977 until his retirement in 2000.
"In a huge public education system where being an undergraduate student can feel like being just another number, Tom Moses offered University of Arizona finance majors an antidote to anonymity. As the highly rated instructor of the senior requirement Corporate Financial Problems, and advisor to all undergraduate finance majors, he knew each student personally. He started the finance department's credit-based internship program and was faculty advisor to the Financial Management Association's UA chapter, which flourished under his leadership. Many of the thousands of students he worked with over the years think of Tom as a mentor and major influence in their lives."
