We've gathered together to establish the Jennifer Bosanko Memorial Scholarship in celebration of a life that ended far too early on February 17, 2015, after a tough fight with melanoma, just weeks before her twenty-eighth birthday.

Jen was a person of many talents and passions: music, cooking, humor, business, a keen intellect and a skeptical approach to the world that made her thoughtful in conversation and resilient in spirit, and that make the absence of our beloved friend, daughter, sister, cousin, niece, granddaughter, Delta Gamma sister, and fellow William and Mary alum so much a greater deficit.

We are working with The College to raise and invest donations such that we can offer an annual scholarship to a William and Mary philosophy major. Your donations will support students who, like Jen, demonstrate intellectual curiosity, industriousness, and a well-rounded approach to taking on the world.

Thank you for your donation, and thank you for never forgetting our friend.

*This fund was listed as a "Contributions in memory of Jen are greatly appreciated and may be made to..." on the memorial service invitation sent by her family.

** Big news!  We’ve launched a new website ( ) for the Jennifer Bosanko Memorial Scholarship. The College of William and Mary is now also directly accepting all donations, allowing donors to make one time / monthly / quarterly / pledge donations using their credit card, by sending a check, or giving through securities.  

Please consider using this as a chance to help us build on the money we’ve already raised in Jen's honor.

Please use the site, and the direct link to the giving page at The College of William and Mary, for all future donations.  Many thanks!
