Application for The Bob Faulkner Memorial Youth Scholarship Award

The Bob Faulkner Memorial Youth Scholarship Award (BFMYSA) will honor Bob for the many roles he played: daylily hybridizer, youth mentor, beloved brother, and special friend. Bob Faulkner’s family has generously donated $1,000 to establish this scholarship, working with a Region 2 Scholarship Committee to establish the details.

The Scholarship is intended to provide financial support to help our Region 2 youth develop their love of daylilies in whatever way feels meaningful to them. The scholarship application is structured into two tiers. The first scholarship level is intended to support someone age 18 or under to attend their FIRST Regional Meeting. The winner(s) of this scholarship will have their registration paid for or reimbursed to attend either a Summer or Winter Meeting. Hotel and transportation costs are not included in this scholarship.

The second scholarship level, up to $100, is intended to support someone age 18 or under to expand their daylily knowledge and/or experiences. Examples could include:

  • funding to purchase daylilies or seeds to begin or expand their hybridizing program
  • funding to purchase educational materials, such as any of the ADS publications
  • funding to attend an ADS National Convention (in addition to registration which is currently being paid for by the Wisconsin Daylily Society)
  • support for opportunities proposed by the applicant

Our sincere thanks to the entire Faulkner family for reaching out to our Region to initiate this tribute to Bob. If any other Region 2 members would like to donate to the BFMYSA, your support would be appreciated. You can make your checks out to AHS Region 2, with BFMYSA in the memo line. Please send your donation to our Region 2 Treasurer Bobbi Johnson, 405 Robin St., Rockland, WI, 54653.

Our vision is that this scholarship will grow and evolve as our youth participate and help us to understand their needs.
