Blackburn Family Scholarship

The Blackburn Family Health Science Scholarship was established by Dr. Botswana Blackburn, teaching professor and chair of the Department of Health Sciences, and her husband, Dr. Joel Blackburn. It is the first scholarship established specifically in this department, which is home to the most popular major on campus: the Bachelor of Health Science in Health Science.

Your gift helps to increase the value of this scholarship, which is awarded annually to a full-time health science major who has completed at least 75 hours toward their BHS degree.
