Scholarships

Elinore Barrett and Robert Campbell Endowed Scholarship in Geography

This scholarship was created in memory of beloved Professors, Elinore Barrett and Robert Campbell, and benefits both undergraduate and graduate students in the Department of Geography and Environmental Sciences.

The Barrett Campbell Endowed scholarship was made possible through a generous donation from Dr. Hsi-Tien (Dan) Chang and Ms. Cecilia Lee Chang. Ms. Chang earned her master’s degree in Geography in 1974 and was a student and friend of Professors Barrett and Campbell. Sadly, Ms. Chang passed away in 2021, and this scholarship was also created to honor her legacy.
