This month we are proud to highlight one of our amazing 2017 GSBA Scholars, Anne Bryson-Doyle! In addition to being a third-year returning GSBA Scholar, she is also the recipient of GSBA's Joan Huber Scholarship.
Anne is currently majoring in Interdisciplinary Visual Arts with a focus on exploring gender expressions at the University of Washington. As the mother of eight children, she is an advocate for meeting the needs of and providing stability for children in crisis, winning the Stella Mae Carmichael Award in 2008 and joining the board of directors for Amara in 2011. Anne’s goal is to complete her master's degree in social work and strive to change the foster care system to achieve permanence for every child.

GSBA supports lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and allied students who have the vision and the ability to truly make a difference in the world. With a GSBA scholarship, students are able to focus more wholly on their academic pursuits. With the financial burden lightened, they are able to work one less job, avoid going into student loan debt, and involve themselves in community activities.
This is a community effort. We are giving these students the gift of education, and they are giving us a future full of hope and equality. We encourage you to join us in supporting tomorrow’s leaders today!
