2nd Lt. Richard Collins IIIIn the wake of 1LT Richard Collins III's death, Bowie State University accepted donations and well-wishes from family, friends and concerned citizens across the country who wanted to make a statement of hope. 

The university stewarded those gifts and is working with the Collins family to establish a scholarship fund that will carry on the values and legacy of 1LT Collins on the campus where his life was transformed. The Bowie State University Foundation will continually accept donations for the 1LT Richard W.
