The Charles Sabatino Study Abroad Scholarship annual fundraising event is not forgotten in 2020 as Daemen College worked closely with the Sabatino family to celebrate Charlie’s legacy in our “new normal.”
Check out this special message from Charlie’s family with warm greetings and an update!
This special scholarship is named in memory of the college’s longtime and beloved professor of philosophy and religious studies, Dr. Charlie Sabatino. He was an ardent supporter of many causes, including service learning and study abroad. The scholarship fund is as unique as the man it honors, a well respected member of the Daemen community, touching the lives of many students, faculty and staff.
Sabatino dedicated his life to helping others both by teaching and through outreach services. He volunteered his time to countless organizations, including working with inmates to help aid in rehabilitation and successful reentry into the community. He was also passionate about both learning and traveling, having felt that submerging oneself into other cultures was the most effective and enriching way to learn and conduct research. Thus far, the scholarship has been able to assist 17 students in their quests to study abroad in 13 countries.
The scholarship relies on donations from the community and was founded by Sabatino’s friends, family and former students, please donate to support our 2020 efforts.
