The Pfennig Scholarship is presented annually to English majors and graduate students who demonstrate exceptional academic ability with a grade-point average of 3.5 or higher. It is made possible by bequest of the late Hazel Tesh Pfennig, a professor of English at Indiana State University for 34 years. The scholarship was established in 1972, two years after her death.

Pfennig was a 1917 graduate of Indiana State Normal School. An avid scholar, she received a master of arts from Columbia University, a doctor of philosophy degree from New York University and did graduate work at Oxford University in England.
