The Don and Barbara “Bobbie” Siegal Scholarship was created in honor of Dr. John L. Blackburn and Dr. Robert E. Witt and in memory of Dr. James Hood and Vivian Malone-Jones. It is awarded annually to a Blackburn student who has demonstrated an interest in and a concern for the promotion of cultural understanding while maintaining an active participation in the Blackburn Institute and showing a devotion to the Institute’s purpose. Applications are reviewed and recipients are selected by a committee of Advisory Board members and Blackburn Institute staff.
Completed applications for the scholarship must be submitted via Qualtrics using the link sent in the summer student newsletter to be considered by the selection committee.
The scholarship recipient is named at the Annual Symposium and the $2,750 scholarship will be credited to the student’s account in October.
