Lieutenant Robert Merton Rawlins Merit Award Scholarship

Mrs. Fern Rawlins established the Lieutenant Robert Merton Rawlins Merit Award Scholarship endowment in 1981 in memory of her son Robert. Mrs. Rawlins had three sons, all of whom served in World War II. Two of her sons returned home. Tragically, her son Robert, an army pilot, was lost over Tokyo Bay while flying a B-29. He was awarded the Silver Star for his action and he is recognized, along with other Chico State Alumni who lost their lives defending our country during WWII, on the bronze plaque near the flag pole on Kendall Hall Lawn. Mrs. Rawlins had a keen interest in education and believed in rewarding merit and achievement. It was her wish to remember her son and his contributions by rewarding excellent students. In accordance with her wishes, faculty nominations should be based on the nominees' seriousness of intent to obtain an education and increase personal knowledge, and their ability to pursue a successful life in any chosen capacity, as evidenced by their scholarship, extracurricular activities, and outstanding professionally-related and academic accomplishments.
