Robert K. Hedrick, Jr. Scholarship Endowment

Robert K. Hedrick, Jr. is a 1971 alumnus who earned a BA in History. The faculty and staff at George Mason had particularly impressed Mr. Hedrick and he wanted to honor their hard work with special acknowledgement extended towards Dr. Josephine Pacheco, who greatly influenced his life. In addition, Mr. Hedrick feels that his education at George Mason University proved to be instrumental in his development as a professional and feels the need to offer the same opportunity to prospective liberal arts students. According to Mr. Hedrick, a liberal arts education is a foundation upon which students can explore a variety of careers.                                          

The fund supports scholarships to students earning a degree in history or art history.  Recipients may be an in-state or out-of-state student. Recipients will be considered on the basis of academic merit and demonstrated financial need, without which the individual would find it difficult to attend George Mason University. This scholarship will be awarded to a full-time, undergraduate student who meets these criteria.

This scholarship is awarded by faculty nomination only and at the discretion of the department.
