The AnBryce Scholars Initiative brings first-generation, low-income students into a family of scholars and mentors, who seek to expose the students to the greater world and encourage them to better it.

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. The Welters' sons, Bryant and Andrew, are graduates of the University of Notre Dame.
