BLN/Krystal Evette Robinson Memorial Scholarship
Our daughter Krystal Evette Robinson died suddenly at age five from complications of sickle cell disease. She was a beautiful little girl with a very kind, giving and unselfish spirit relative to her older sister and younger brother. Since we did not have to fund her education due to her early demise, we decided to help fund other students in lieu of Krystal. By so doing, her memory would always be strengthened and perpetuated in a positive manner reflecting her generous and unselfish personality.
This is a University-wide scholarship and students must have a minimum 3.0 GPA for initial award and 2.5 GPA for renewal (as calculated by USF). This scholarship is renewable up to 8 semesters and is for full or part-time students at all academic levels, pursuing all majors, in all colleges, on all campuses. Preference for first generation students and those engaged in the Black Leadership Network that supports African Americans and African American initiatives throughout the USF System and in our community.
Requires personal statement and student resume.
