The Cory Andersen Scholarship
Cory Andersen was a true advocate for youth empowerment, community outreach, education and travel.
He lived every bit of his life, selflessly wanting the best for others and his legacy lives on in the hearts of many throughout the world. He will always be remembered for his compassion, his vision, and his work. Cory was a supporter of the I AM C.U.L.T.U.R.E.D. mission and in his memory, we will ensure that each student reaches their mountaintop.
The Cory Andersen Scholarship is awarded one-time at the annual I AM C.U.L.T.U.R.E.D. Fundraising Gala to the graduating high school seniors of I AM C.U.L.T.U.R.E.D. in continued support of believing in dreams, taking risks, and commitment to bettering local and global communities in the future.
The scholarship recipients must have participated in the two-year cultural program and enrolled in a college or trade school.
