of Chris Borton (Warren College graduate, class of 1988)
a scholarship fund was established in 1996 to assist University
of California San Diego students wishing to study abroad.
While at UCSD, Chris spent a year at the University of Göttingen
in Germany through the Education Abroad Program, an experience
that profoundly influenced the direction of his life. Together
with his childhood experiences of living in different cultures
and later studies and travels abroad, it made him the world
citizen he was. His family and friends feel that Chris would
be happy to have this kind of opportunity available to other
The amount available is determined by the earnings from
donations to the endowment fund. The criteria
for selection were established by the trustees of the
fund in conjunction with UC San Diego. The guiding principle
is to further international understanding.
The fund was
initiated by Mike Scanlin, one of Chris' closest friends
from UCSD days. The fund's management is assisted by Mike's
father Joe, who was a financial advisor to Chris.
