Donate to the Claire Allen Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Claire Allen Scholarship Fund supports activities for youth that honor the life and legacy of Claire Allen, a dedicated SummerWrite student (2016 and 2017); avid reader; published writer; and accomplished musician, actor, and athlete. Claire was bright, kind, and had a passion for social justice. Her spirit lives on through this fund, established in her memory in 2017.

This fund provides scholarships and financial support for Claire Allen Social Justice Apprenticeships. Launched in 2021, Claire Allen Apprenticeships are open to all high school juniors and seniors and college students who demonstrate a commitment to social justice.  Students and recent graduates from Livingston County and the Rochester City School District are especially encouraged to apply.
