Honoring Professor David Ferguson

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Since my July 13 email regarding the passing of Professor David Ferguson, many have expressed their wishes to commemorate Dave's remarkable career at Stony Brook University. I would like to share that a memorial service will take place on campus during the fall semester. Event details will be communicated in the coming months. For additional information, please contact

In the meantime, I am proud to announce the creation of the David L. Ferguson Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship will be awarded to an engineering student from a demographic group that is underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Preference in awarding will be given to a student majoring in Technology and Society in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

Please click  here to donate to the scholarship, a tangible reminder of Dave’s extraordinary dedication to our STEM students from underrepresented backgrounds and to our entire campus community.

Thank you for your commitment to honoring Dave Ferguson’s tremendous legacy at Stony Brook University.
