Our friends at DACOR are pleased to announce a new scholarship -- The Sherry Barndollar Rock Scholarship: Meeting the Educational Needs of Foreign Service Spouses and Partners.

The family and friends of the late Sherry Barndollar Rock, a Foreign Service spouse who accompanied her husband on several foreign assignments, have established a scholarship in her memory to support the Foreign Service community and to help members of the Foreign Service family pursue their educational goals. As a member of the Foreign Service community, Sherry recognized the challenge that a Foreign Service career presents to spouses who must take a fragmented approach to fulfill their personal educational goals from locations throughout the world. For family, it was a logical decision to honor Sherry by establishing a scholarship at DACOR to further support these educational needs.

The scholarship deadline is January 31, 2022 and more information and application is available here: https://dacorbacon.org/sherry_barndollar_rock_scholar.php
