Jackie Anderson Scholarship Fund
Longtime Chicago civil-rights activist Jackie Anderson will be remembered in a more permanent way, after her passing Jan. 7. Her family has established a scholarship in her name at Roosevelt University. Thanks to initial donations, the $5,000 scholarship is now endowed, but donations are needed to be used toward students.
Roosevelt University held a special place in Anderson's heart. One promise she asked Torrence ( her grandson ) to keep was to start a scholarship fund for young African-American female students to help continue their pursuit of higher education. She understood that $1,000 could be the difference between degree completion and dropping out. Therefore, a donation to the Jackie Anderson Scholarship Fund is being sought by family and friends.
