F. Burton Nelson Holocaust Studies Memorial Award
This award recognizes annually a student who has demonstrated a commitment to Holocaust Studies. Through a generous gift Paul and Nancy Vincent, the award honors the late F. Burton Nelson, Professor of Theology at North Park Theological Seminary in Chicago. In 1965, while completing his dissertation on "The Ecumenical Movement and the Problem of World Peace," Nelson enrolled in a doctoral seminar and was asked to select a contemporary ethicist for a research paper. As chance had it, he selected Dietrich Bonhoeffer; Bonhoeffer, a German theologian murdered by the Nazis, became Nelson's theological companion for the remainder of his life.
Recipients of this award shall be nominated by the members of the Holocaust Studies Council and selected by a committee of at least three Holocaust Studies faculty. Consideration for this award shall be given to an outstanding sophomore or junior at Keene State College, full or part time, with a major or minor in Holocaust studies. A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required and the student must be able to attend the annual Spring Honors Convocation to accept the award.
