Expand your possibilities,learn to shape the world.

The AnBryce Scholars Initiative brings first-generation, scholar leaders into a close knit family of students and faculty/staff mentors. We believe our scholars represent the best of Notre Dame and aim to assist in exposing our students to a cosmopolitan, inclusive vision of the world with all its complexity. Then, we encourage them to better it using their talents as a force for good. AnBryce Scholars come to campus from all across the world, united by their impressive academic potential and leadership skills, their success in the face of adversity. They pursue every area of study and seek summer enrichment through social justice and community service initiatives, educational experiences, and internships in business, engineering, social sciences, education, and the arts. 

The AnBryce Scholars Initiative reflects the vision of Mr. Anthony Welters and Ambassador Beatrice Wilkinson Welters, who began the AnBryce Foundation in 1995. The Welters' sons, Bryant and Andrew, are graduates of the University of Notre Dame.
