Learn to lead with integrity, compassion, and wisdom.

The AnBryce Scholars Initiative aims to identify and cultivate future leaders who will be committed to making a difference in the complex and often fractured world in which we live. The AnBryce Scholars Initiative reflects the vision of Mr. Anthony Welters and Ambassador Beatrice Wilkinson Welters, who began the AnBryce Foundation in 1995 to provide intellectual and social opportunities for underserved youth.

Students who are selected to join the AnBryce program will become part of an undergraduate population whose high school performance and testing scores place Notre Dame in the top 15 research universities in the country. Hailing from all 50 states and from 50 countries, Notre Dame undergraduates choose majors housed in the University’s four colleges: the College of Arts and Letters, the College of Science, the College of Engineering, the Mendoza College of Business, and the School of Architecture. 


In addition to the University’s resources, AnBryce Scholars will be offered enrichment programming that includes opportunities to connect with professionals and faculty from a range of fields, participate in a uniquely designed study abroad opportunity, and have opportunities to interact with the Welters and the extended AnBryce family several times throughout their academic career.

It is our belief that those who have achieved success in the face of personal and socioeconomic challenges are uniquely poised to make a difference in the world. With a Notre Dame education, which in addition to academic rigor stresses the development of character and service to others, AnBryce Scholars will be equipped to better shape the world, and to lead with integrity, compassion and wisdom.
