Our colleague Michael Maxey is announcing scholarship opportunities from the family foundation, Marie Maxey Foundation, in memory of USAID staff and their families. You can see the 2020 scholarship list and the 2021 opportunities at For 2021, they have a round of scholarships being awarded at the end of August and another round at the end of December.

The foundation is seeking more scholarship applications, with a primary focus on helping Latino youth that are attending or have been accepted to a two or four year college or technical school. However, they have one new scholarship funded by Ambassador Michael Owen that honors the memory of an elementary school teacher and administrator in Coahoma County, Mississippi. This scholarship is for a deserving youth from Coahoma County that is interested in a career in the US Foreign Service.

Another scholarship, generously funded by former Mission Director Tom Geiger, honors the memory of our USAID colleague Kraig Baier. The first award of this scholarship will be at the end of August 2021 with a second scholarship awarded in December 2021.

They also have the following recurring scholarships in memory of USAID family members:

–Dick and Julia Goughnour with friends and colleagues have generously funded two annual scholarships in memory of their son, Christopher James Goughnour;
–Dulce Deinken, the wife of Peter Deinken, passed away in 2018. Dulce is being honored by friends and family with a twice yearly scholarship for Latino youth; and
— Elena Bathrick, wife of David Bathrick, passed away in 2019. Elena is being honored with a twice yearly scholarship to Latino youth.
