The Crister Stephen Garrett Scholarship

Our father, husband and best friend's vocation in life was that of teacher.

It was always his goal to encourage young people—to believe in themselves, stand up and find their own voice, and create a world that embraces its differences, knows no borders, and offers everyone an equal chance. We do not want his passing to mark the end of his great goal.

We wish to establish a scholarship to help students follow their own dreams and goals: whether to study abroad, engage in worthwhile internships, or simply flourish in their studies at the University of Leipzig.

The Crister Stephen Garrett Scholarship would assist students with vital necessities like travel or living expenses.

We will be thankful for each donation that brings us closer to honoring the incredible teacher and role model. The number of scholarships we are able to hand out depends on how much we, with your participation, can raise. We will post a call for applications with exact instructions in May. The selection process will be explained and the people, who will help us with that process will be introduced.  We’ll post more specific details later. 

In fond and loving memory of an amazing human being,
his wife and daughters - Claudia, Kajsa and Sanna Garrett

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We are overwhelmed by your response. Due to the amount of donations it is not possible to thank everyone individually right now, but please be assured that we are reading every post and are appreciating every contribution so, so much!
We are sure, Crister is looking at these efforts with a smile on his face from somewhere too.
We will keep on raising the goal, as long as donations come in. Very latest in June we will let you know the parameters of handing out the first scholarships.

Reached 8000 already!
We've decided to raise the goal to 10,000€ - to simply see how far we can go. Each donation counts and the additional funds will also go to the students.
Anybody that wants to donate, can.
Thank you to everyone that has donated so far. We will thank each and every one of you separately, once we have the time.
