Keck, Dr. Gregory C. Endowed Scholarship in Social Work
The Dr. Gregory C. Keck Endowed Scholarship in Social Work was established in 2005 by Dr. Gregory C. Keck. Dr. Keck is the founder and director of the Attachment and Bonding Center of Ohio, specializing in working with adoptive families whose children experienced early trauma. He has been an advocate for children, family, and professionals in the foster care and adoption system, providing valuable educational tools, training, and support services both nationally and internationally since 1990. Dr. Keck also has published numerous articles and co-authored two books on the topics: adopting the hurt child and parenting the hurt child.
The scholarship will be awarded annually to either a graduate or undergraduate student(s) majoring in social work, with preference given to students who have previously been in foster care or who have been adopted. If no student meets the above listed criteria, it is preferred that the student be majoring in social work with an emphasis in adoption and foster care. Students currently working in the foster care or adoption field may also qualify. The recipient(s) shall be selected annually by the director of the School of Social Work with input from Dr. Gregory Keck, in coordination with the Office of Student Financial Assistance.
