The Robert F. Collins Sport Media Scholarship is presented annually to select Bowling Green State University students interested in studying sport media. The scholarship honors the late “Bob” Collins, the highly regarded sports editor and award-winning columnist for The Rocky Mountain News (Denver, Colorado).
The Collins Scholarship is awarded each spring to one BGSU sophomore or junior in the Sport Management Program and one sophomore or junior in the Department of Journalism and Public Relations who demonstrates an interest in pursuing a career in the sport media. The Collins Scholarship was established in 2011 and continues to be supported by members of the Collins and Maxwell families.
A significant collection of his newspaper stories, reports, and columns are available for viewing in The Richard A. Maxwell Sport Media Project Archival Collections in the Mary Watt Center on the main campus of Bowling Green State University.
