Howard Fellows Program (HFP)

The Howard Fellows Program exists so that Eastern students, through scholarship, can continue to support Eastern admission, marketing and other University departments with messaging through various channels that involve specialized marketing technologies.

Mission Statement

"Serving Eastern University's community with innovation and integrity while gaining real world technological experience through relational mentorships”

You should know that we are the living legacy of an amazing man, Harold Howard. He was born in Loogootee, IN in 1926, and became a History professor at Eastern in 1965. While at Eastern he started the degree completion program to help working adults acquire their college degrees. One of his students described Dr. Howard as “a true visionary, computer and technologically adept… his selflessness and unflinching service to Jesus helped Eastern University live up to its motto ‘The whole Gospel for the whole world’.”

“The Howard Fellows program seeks to transform higher-education marketing practices by allowing students to participate in the process through the use of technology, incorporating values of integrity and innovation along the way. While working directly with knowledgeable professionals in various departments, students are given the opportunity to form lasting relationships with mentors and peers alike.”
