Sheryl A. Blair Scholarships

Established in 2007 to honor the memory of former ADRP board member Sheryl Blair, the Sheryl A. Blair Scholarship provides up to ten stipends of $1,000 to newcomers and established members in the donor relations/stewardship field to cover ADRP International Conference expenses. Recipients are responsible for covering expenses beyond the scholarship award amount.

Blair Scholars were recognized at the 2014 ADRP International Conference. They provided a brief essay after the conference, highlighting their experience there.
