Furthermore, the endowment enables the creation of graduate fellowships, exclusively available to Kelley School students who exhibit a keen interest in the study of finance or securities. Additionally, two professorships have been established, recognizing and rewarding faculty members with extensive expertise in the field of securities analysis—an industry that played a pivotal role in Richter’s own professional journey. Lastly, the endowment remains open to consider additional requests aligned with the aforementioned funding streams, provided that adequate bequest funds are available.
