New in 2015: the Kit Faragher Foundation has expanded its scholarship offerings. We will still offer three scholarships to graduating Colorado high school seniors, however, one of those scholarships will now be dedicated to a graduating senior from a Montrose County High School as that community has been so generous in supporting our foundation.
Also, new in 2015: the Kit Faragher Foundation will offer a 4th scholarship to a graduating high school senior from a Geauga County, Ohio high school. Kit Faragher grew up in and attended high school in Geauga County, and the Foundation will support deserving students in that community as well.
The applications for the Colorado and Geauga County, Ohio 2015 Kit Faragher Foundation Scholarships will be available online starting early March, 2015. The application deadline is Friday, May 22, 2015. Please see our Application Page for details.
The applications for 2016 will be available soon!
Keeping Kit Faragher's Legacy Alive!
Kathleen "Kit" Faragher was a woman full of life, love and enthusiasm. She committed herself to everything she did whether it was her career, her studies, or having fun. Kit's smile, positive attitude and love brought joy to her family and friends. Although her life was cut short, Kit attained happiness, love and success
Kit Faragher lost her life in the tragic events of September 11, 2001. Kit had worked for Janus Capital Corporation in Denver, Colorado for almost seven years. In her memory, the Janus Foundation began the Kit Faragher Memorial Scholarship for students entering college in the 2002 to 2003 school year. The Faragher family, with great assistance and financial support from the Janus Foundation, has continued the scholarship through the formation of the Kit Faragher Foundation. Organized in April 2003, the Kit Faragher Foundation has provided annual scholarships to students since then.

"Not only have I continued to reach my goals academically, but I also took the time to complete twenty hours of community service during my free time, which was a resolution of mine to achieve"
"I have been so grateful for what this scholarship has provided me both financially and emotionally. I would like to thanks the Kit Faragher Foundation for the opportunity they provided me by believing in my potential and choosing to invest in my education. These past two years have been quite memorable, and I have this foundation to thank for playing a part in my motivation towards success."

"The most enjoyable part of college for me was the living on campus experience and being on my own for the first time. I met what are now some of my best friends this year that I will be spending the next four years with."
