Richard A. Hammill Scholarship Fund
The Richard A. Hammill Scholarship Fund provides an annual scholarship award for students who are enrolled in the Marketing Program at Georgia State University. It is in partnership with the J. Mack Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University and through the generosity of Richard “Dick” A. Hammill, retired Senior Vice President of Marketing for The Home Depot, along with several of Dick’s friends and colleagues that the American Marketing Association Foundation (AMAF) is able to provide this award. The scholarship was awarded for the first time in the Spring of 2005.
In congratulating the first scholarship recipient, Hammill commented on why he supports such an initiative through the AMAF, saying “My personal contributions have been a wonderful way of giving back to education, which was the starting point of my own blessed career. To be able to help, in some small way, a high potential student with financial challenges not only seems like the right thing to do, it’s incredibly rewarding.”
