This is a copy of a letter we sent out to some friends and family to infom them about the scholarship - This letter describes the scholarship well to give you a better understanding.

In September 2005 the Rodney. W. Welling Memorial Scholarship Endowment was established by and in conjunction with Dawn Geary, Department of Visual Arts & New Media, and under the control of the Fredonia College Foundation at SUNY Fredonia.


To receive the scholarship the recipient must:

  1. Be enrolled full time throughout the academic year during which the scholarship is awarded
  2. Exhibit a positive work ethic
  3. Be concerned about and positively influence their fellow students
  4. Be of junior class rank and in good standing with at least a 2.75 GPA


The basic purpose of this letter is to advise you that this scholarship is up and running. There is a benefit concert being planned in memory of Rod during the summer of 2006 (May 28th) to assist us in generating the funds needed to get this scholarship up to a level that will carry it for many years. There are also plans of holding similar events annually to continue the memory of Rod and for generating additional funds for his scholarship.


Please understand that this is not a direct solicitation for funds. Rod & his family know so many people this was the only way we could think of to let everyone know about the scholarship.


We believe that this scholarship is designed to reward those students that make a positive impression on the lives of their fellow students, much the same as Rod had done with people in his life. If you would like to make a contribution you can send a check to the Fredonia College Foundation at the following address.
