The Nicsa/William T. Blackwell Scholarship Fund was established as a tribute to former Nicsa President Bill Blackwell’s commitment to education and to recognize outstanding students of the Nicsa family with financial and social support for postsecondary education. Blackwell Scholars receive up to four years of scholarship support, a mentor from a Nicsa member company, and access to career networking and internship opportunities.
The Blackwell Scholarship strives to honor Bill's legacy as a leader and mentor through his long career at State Street Bank in Boston and as a President of Nicsa, as well as the honesty and integrity that he displayed in his business and personal life.
Each year, Nicsa’s Strategic Leadership Forum (SLF) features the Blackwell Scholarship Charity Golf Tournament. All proceeds from the tournament go toward the scholarship fund.
