Charlie Davies Memorial Scholarship for Bereaved Students

This scholarship was created in 2022 by Shaun and Kjerstin Davies, both graduates of the University of Colorado Boulder (class of 2005). The Davies and their children are strong supporters of all things related to CU (academics and athletics). Their second child, Charlie Davies, passed away at the age of 23 months old. Through that tragedy, Shaun and Kjerstin recognized a need to support children suffering from loss. As such, they formed the charity Charlie’s Guys which provides bereaved children with a unique and special experience or gift, so they feel loved and not forgotten during a very tragic and trying time. In addition, they established this Fund to support these same kids as they become young adults and attend CU.

This scholarship will support an undergraduate student that has experienced loss. Students must submit an essay about how the loss has affected them and their future plans.

Supplemental Questions
  1. Discuss a personal loss that you've experienced and how that death has affected you and your future plans.
