Robert F. Staun Scholarship

The Robert F. Staun Scholarship is in memory of our father. We lost our beloved father to cancer in 2022.
Beyond our father’s incredible gift of storytelling, his trademarks were the kindness and generosity he
bestowed on anyone he met. As an accountant, he told us stories of how he helped families in need. Whether
it was donating his time to aid clients in better financial decisions or giving advice for free because it was the
right thing to do, he was the epitome of a servant leader. In his later years, he earned his pilot's license and
encouraged each one of us to pursue our dreams. This scholarship is in honor of Dad’s memory and his last
wish to fund dreams for students in need.

Scholarship Amount: $500-$2000. The scholarship must be utilized within one year of the date of the award.
