To celebrate the life of David Rakoff, The John C. Campbell Folk School has established a fund that will award the first David Rakoff Scholarship in 2013. This Scholarship fund will provide tuition for a week-long class. David was a student, a dear friend of the Folk School and a member of its Board of Directors. In a New York Times article, David wrote, "The week I spent there is as close as it gets to my idea of paradise.
