The Bruce N. Chaloux IELOL Scholarship was established in 2014 as a way to honor Dr. Chaloux’s contribution and dedication to developing leadership in the field of online learning. Dr. Chaloux believed that in order to continue the forward momentum of online learning in higher education we needed to invest in and support the professional growth and preparation of the “next cadre” of leaders. Dr. Chaloux was an ardent champion of IELOL and participated in every offering serving as either faculty or program co-director. Dr. Chaloux had a particular interest in supporting international participants in the program because of the global nature of the online learning initiative. Bruce also sought to identify individuals in developing countries who would benefit from IELOL and the network of professionals in the Online Learning Consortium (OLC). Although not restricted to an international applicant, priority will be given to those who express need from institutions external to the United States.
