Kelsey Fourdyce Memorial Study Abroad Scholarship Fund
Established in 2015 by the family and friends of Kelsey Fourdyce, this scholarship honors her memory by giving those who otherwise would not be able to study abroad an opportunity to follow in her footsteps. Recipients of this scholarship are encouraged to embrace other cultures, learn new languages, and make life-long relationships with those they meet along the way.
Kelsey Fourdyce was a loving daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, friend, and citizen of the world. Kelsey had a passion for life and a love for travel. While studying at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign—where in 2006 she earned her B.S. in Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences—she spent a semester in Granada, Spain, which sparked her curiosity for the people and languages of the world. Her travels inspired her to become fluent in Spanish and French, make homes on 3 continents, and receive degrees in two countries. In January, 2014, she was awarded a Master's of Science in International Business Development from the University of Neuchatel, Switzerland, with the distinction cum laude. Throughout her adventures, Kelsey built lasting friendships and left a meaningful impression on others everywhere.
You do not travel if you are afraid of the unknown.
You travel for the unknown, that reveals you in yourself.
