The Robert Baizer Scholarship Fund was established in 2017 by the SET Board of Directors to honor the board chair emeritus of SET for the purpose of providing a merit-based financial scholarship to the graduating student who best exemplifies the academic, ethical, community service, and leadership principles of SET. The Baizer Scholar, the name given to the recipient of the scholarship, must enroll in and attend an undergraduate program at a community college or university. The Baizer Scholar is granted a one-time award of $2,000 to be used to cover the tuition and/or room and board fees at the recipient’s college or university. Weed was the first recipient of the award and is the inaugural Baizer Scholar.
