John Andrew Jarboe Memorial Scholarship

Awarded to a junior or senior with emphasis in outdoor recreation, the John Andrew Jarboe Memorial Scholarship is given to students who have demonstrated excellence in both academic achievement and personal/professional development.

Dr. and Mrs. Everett Jarboe established this scholarship in 1979 in memory of their son, John Andrew Jarboe, who deeply loved the outdoors. Dr. Jarboe was an emeritus professor in the School of Education and Mrs. Jarboe retired as a reference librarian for University Libraries. The Jarboes always had a special interest in the work of Professor Reynold E. Carlson, now deceased, who served Bradford Woods camping/outdoor recreation programs and the Department of Recreation, Park and Tourism Studies. Everett Jarboe passed away in 2006.
