The Sebastian Herbstein Memorial Scholarship in Fiction Writing

The Sebastian Herbstein Memorial Scholarship in Fiction Writing was established in 2012 by Dr. Judith Freidenberg, Sebastian’s mother, an emeritus professor of anthropology at the University of Maryland. The scholarship is awarded in memory of Sebastian, a young aspiring fiction writer, a 1996 graduate of Colby College and a member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity, who passed away June 20, 2002. The College of Behavioral and Social Sciences and University of Maryland Communities join with UMD Anthropology's Professor Freidenberg in celebrating the life and honoring the memory of this talented writer, dedicated scholar, caring family member and loyal friend.
