The David Leonard Scholarship

David C. Leonard ScholarshipDr. David Leonard

Students in the MSTCM program are eligible to apply for the David C. Leonard Scholarship. This award is given in memory of Dr. Leonard, one of the founders of Mercer’s MSTCM program.

Throughout his life, Dr. Leonard dedicated himself to the education of future technical communicators, believing technical communication to be a key profession in our increasingly technological world. Dr. Leonard passed away in March 2002 after a long battle with cancer. This scholarship is a fitting tribute to a man whose commitment to the technical communication field and to his students remains commendable.

The scholarship was funded by current and former students, faculty, family, and friends. Currently enrolled students will receive an invitation to apply for the next academic year's scholarship in March of the preceding academic year.
