Biographical/Historical Note

The Barbara J. Rankin Scholarship Fund makes money available to students in the area of outdoor education. Undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Georgia are invited to submit proposals for consideration, with awards being made based on competitive review and in conjunction with the Fund's goals.

The goal of the scholarship is to promote training and research in outdoor education. Outdoor education is interpreted broadly and includes activities aimed at engaging, educating, and enhancing people’s knowledge of and respect for the outdoors. Outdoor education occurs in a variety of settings including summer camps, environmental education centers, classrooms, and other venues. Scholarships will be assessed in relation to (a) potential contribution to the field of outdoor education, (b) innovation, and (c) need. Priority will be given to Recreation and Leisure Studies majors.
