Dear Barry  Wellman,

Dr. Everett Rogers, Professor of Communication & Journalism and Regents Professor at the University of New Mexico, lost a prolonged battle with cancer on October 21, 2004.  Dr. Rogers touched the lives of many throughout his long and distinguished academic career.  As a scholar, his impressive body of work has provoked social change, inspired new ideas and insights, and influenced the research of countless others.  His most significant contribution, however, is the living legacy of his students.  Almost 47 years of his life was dedicated to the fulfillment of his role as teacher and mentor.

The Department of Communication and Journalism at the University of New
Mexico has established the Everett M. Rogers Memorial Scholarship to
continue his tradition of assisting graduate students in the pursuit of
excellence.  Scholarships from this endowment will be awarded to deserving
UNM graduate students for such things as travel to conferences, tuition,
and research funding.

You are invited to help support this fund as a tribute and testament to
this extraordinary scholar, mentor, and friend.  If you wish to make a
cash contribution, please make your checks payable to UNM Department of
Communication and Journalism/Rogers Memorial Scholarship and mail to the
Department of Communication and Journalism, MSC03 2240, University of New
Mexico, Albuquerque, NM 87131-1171.  If you want to contribute a gift,
please contact John Oetzel, Chair of the Department at (505) 277-1905.
