Humboldt State University established the Alistair and Judith McCrone Graduate Fellowship Fund in October 2001.  The fund was created to honor Dr. and Mrs. McCrone, who together shepherded Humboldt State University and its students for over a quarter of a century. This award will recognize one outstanding graduate student, acknowledge their potential, and encourage their continued achievement in their graduate program.
