Dr. Gerald Carlson and his wife, Barbara, have created an endowment in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, where Carlson spent 35 years as a faculty member.  The Barbara E. and Gerald A. Carlson Endowment — to fund the annual Gerald A. Carlson Outstanding Ph.D. Dissertation Award in Agricultural and Resource Economics — was established April 29.

At the same time, the inaugural Carlson awards were presented to Dr. Keri Jacobs and Dr. Ying Zhu, honoring their outstanding dissertations in pursuit of their 2010 doctoral degrees from N.C. State.
