The Bob Russell Entomology Scholarship was established in the 2005 to honor long-time and dedicated leader Robert M. Russell. It was Mr. Russells vision in the 1980s to seek an Urban Entomology Program at the University of Georgia. This scholarship honors his memory and will serve to encourage those students who seek to pursue Entomology as a course of study. The program is funded by the interest earned from a trust fund established by the Russell family and Bobs friends who contributed memorial gifts to honor him. Additionally, the GPCA Charity Golf Tournament contributes to the fund.
