Black Friday Scholarship Fund

On November 25, 2016 family and friends of Gabriel Scheller launched a memorial fund in his honor

The Black Friday Scholarship Fund is a memorial scholarship fund for economically challenged students of color. This scholarship is unique in that it will also set aside matching funds to provide mental health and/or other support services to scholarship recipients. Our short-term goal is to provide an initial award of $1000 paired with an additional $1000 in reserve. The long-term goal is to provide 5 awards in 5 years and 10 awards in 10 years.

The Officers and Board of the fund consist of Gabe’s family and friends from Wheaton College.
