The Dobro Slovo Scholarship fund was established in 2004 to support summer study at St. Petersburg University for deserving Wiliam and Mary students. In Spring 2006 Rachel Olcheski won the first Scholarship to study at St. Petersburg University in Summer 2006.  Our most recent scholarship recipient, Rachel Faith, thanks you for the award.  You can read her letter about her experience in Russia here. The Scholarship is named in honor of the National Slavic Honors Society, originally founded as a local honorary society on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley on October 29, 1926. Dobro Slovo exists to recognize academic excellence in the study of Slavic languages, literatures and history.  A local chapter of Dobro Slovo was established at William and Mary by Professor Bella Ginzbursky-Blum in 1994.
