A Queer Endeavor Kelley Therese Wylder Anderson Scholarship
This scholarship was created in memory of and as a tribute to Kelley Therese Wylder Anderson (October 28, 1990- July 30, 2017). Kelley’s (she/they) life work involved community and social engagement efforts in both the U.S. and abroad. She graduated from CU Boulder with a Certificate in the Study & Practice of Leadership from INVST and a BA. Kelley also worked with the Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence (SPAN), Moving to End Sexual Assault (MESA), Youth Global Leaders (YGL), and was A Queer Endeavor’s first volunteer. Days before Kelley passed away, Kelley made a plan to return to CU Boulder to earn their Masters’ degree in Education and to become a teacher. This scholarship will be used to provide graduate and/or undergraduate scholarship awards for students enrolled in the School who plan to pursue research and/or teaching focused on education equity, justice or anti-oppression.
Eligible applicants must be an undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in the School of Education as a major and must have explicit commitments to equity, justice, and anti-oppression. LGBTQ+, Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) students are particularly encouraged to apply for scholarships from the fund; however, gender, sexual orientation race, and national origin will not be considered as a factor in the scholarship selection process.
