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 2021 scholarship must be submitted online no later than 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, July 29, 2021 to be considered by the selection committee.
The scholarship recipient will be named at the 2021 Annual Symposium (August 27-28, 2021) and the $2,750 scholarship will be credited to the student’s account in October 2021.
