Venice Arts Launches the Ted M. Warshafsky Scholarship Fund

Friday, December 07, 2012 at 3:53PM

Venice Arts is pleased to announce the launch of the Ted M. Warshafsky Scholarship Fund, created to keep alive the legacy and important work of Ted's Anne Frank | Emmet Till Scholarship Fund, which honored two innocent young people who, in Ted's words, "were slaughtered in their teens at the altar of bigotry: Anne Frank by the Nazis because she was Jewish; Emmet Till by the KKK because he was African American."

The fund, created through a seed grant from the Warshafsky Law Firm Foundation, now annually supports several deserving, low-income young people involved in Venice Arts' Advanced Studies programs. In carrying on Ted’s tradition, recipients will receive $1,000, a copy of The Diary of Anne Frank, and a biography of Emmett Till. Consistent with Ted's approach, scholarship awards will be based primarily on financial need and only secondarily on high school grade levels. Ted believed that all motivated young people should have the opportunity to go to college and knew, from his own life experience growing up in poverty on Chicago’s south side, that attending college has the potential to transform a life.

Learn more about the fund and how to apply here. Applications for the first round of the scholarships are due January 31, 2013.

We invite other donors committed to supporting a college pathway for low-income students to contribute to building this Fund. Our goal? To double the initial gift of $25,000 from the Warshafsky Law Firm Foundation in 2013—our 20th Anniversary year—helping to assure the provision of ongoing, annual support to deserving students for many years to come. Make a donation to the fund.
