Help us honor the legacy of Dr. Robert L. Williams

The late Professor Emeritus Robert L. Williams, PhD ’61,  was the founding director of Black Studies at Washington University and a founding member of the Association of Black Psychologists. He is perhaps best known for creating the Black Intelligence Test of Cultural Homogeneity and coining the term “Ebonics.” Throughout his career, Dr. Williams broke barriers and remained committed to challenging, encouraging and supporting students. In similar spirit, the Black Alumni Council’s Endowed Scholarship Fund was established to support students who contribute to the diversity of the Washington University community. Potential candidates for the scholarship are full-time Juniors or Seniors in good academic standing with demonstrated need who contribute to the diversity of our campus and the WashU community. The scholarship is awarded each year in the fall semester.

Your contribution to the Black Alumni Council Endowed Scholarship Fund will help us celebrate Robert L. Williams' legacy of excellence and dedication by supporting talented WashU students. Make a gift today.
