					                     William Robert Simmons Scholarship
                          University of Colorado at Denver
                                               Fall 2009
The William Robert Simmons Scholarship Endowment has been established to offer a
university education to serious students who might otherwise not have the monetary
resources necessary to allow them to devote themselves to learning. Scholarship assistance
shall be used for resident tuition and textbooks to selected undergraduate students, although
the funds available will probably not cover all such expenses. For the Fall 2009 the stipend
is estimated to be about $500. These students must be matriculated in the CU-Denver
Physics, Mathematics, or College of Engineering and Applied Science undergraduate
programs. The Scholarship Fund has been established with funds from the Donor, family,
friends, and colleagues of Professor William Robert (Bill) Simmons.

William R. (Bill) Simmons passed away December 3, 1996. He taught Physics at CU-Denver
for over twenty years continuing through the spring 1996 semester. Bill was an outstanding
teacher and his dedication to his students and their needs was legendary. Bill was able to
effectively teach his students to work to the best of their abilities. They learned to apply their
knowledge and excelled after leaving college. Bill was repeatedly elected as the
“Outstanding Engineering Professor of the Year,” receiving nine Engineering awards in his
twenty-one years of teaching. He was a finalist once in the school wide “Teacher
Recognition Awards.” Professor Simmons was a Tau Beta Pi, Sigma Pi Sigma, and Sigma Xi
honor student himself. He began school on the GI Bill for veterans and never stopped
learning. He encouraged his students to learn from every experience. Bill’s undergraduate
degree was in Engineering Physics and his Ph.D. was in Physics so he had one foot firmly
planted in Physics and one in Engineering.
       ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This scholarship will be awarded for the Fall Semester 2009. The maximum scholarship may not
exceed full resident tuition and fees for the enrolled credit hours plus 10% of that amount for a
book allowance. The award is approximately $500 for 2009. Students may receive successive
scholarships for subsequent semesters if they continue to meet eligibility criteria.
