Bob and Peregrine Falcon

We are pleased to present the Robert Anderson Memorial Scholarship Fund! Our Board established the scholarship to pay forward Bob’s incredible legacy of passion, dedication, and commitment to making a difference. Scholarships will be awarded to selected Luther College students in Decorah, Iowa who demonstrate a concern for the environment through positive environmental activism and community involvement or independent studies related to environmentalism.

The endowment is designed to receive gifts through contributions, bequests, charitable trust remainders, and other gifts directed to the Fund. To make donations to the fund, contact the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa at 319-287-9106 or go to the donation page: www.cfneia.org/robert-anderson-scholarship.

Bob founded the Raptor Resource Project in 1988 to breed the highly endangered peregrine falcon for release. He was a great friend to people and birds of prey, an enthusiastic climber, a wonderful fly fisherman, a beer connoisseur, an avid reader, a thoughtful and thorough researcher, a great writer, a huge crossword puzzle fan, an exceptional cook, and someone who lived life to the fullest. To learn more about his incredible work, follow this link: http://www.raptorresource.org/about-us/remembering-bob-anderson/.
