Bilinski Fellows

About the Bilinski Educational Foundation

Russell and Dorothy Bilinski were true intellectuals, as well as being adventuresome, independent and driven. They believed in people being self-sufficient, ambitious and above all responsible. Russell was a researcher, academician and an entrepreneur. Dorothy was an accomplished artist and patron of the arts. They died leaving a significant gift in the formation of the Bilinski Educational Foundation. They believed that education was a means to obtain independence and this is the legacy they wished to pass on to others.

The fellowship began in 2013 and short biographies of the recipients can be found below:
