In the wake of the George Floyd protests, the quidditch community has been working on creating a more inclusive space for black, indigenous, and other people of color. Aligning with Columbia College Chicago's mission for diversity and inclusion, the Columbia Renegades Quidditch team is creating an academic scholarship for one freshman person of color(POC) every season starting in 2021. The scholarship will be need-based, and take into account leadership qualities exhibited throughout high school and from the first semester on the quidditch team. The board that decides the recipient every season will be a combination of team leadership and Student Athletic Association liaisons.
The minimum amount to start an endowment fund for this scholarship at Columbia is $25,000, and once funded, will start to accrue more value over time while being run by the College of Business at CCC.
We're hoping this scholarship encourages more people of color to play quidditch at Columbia College Chicago and encourages them to take up leadership positions not only internally, but within the quidditch community as well. Thank you for supporting the vision of the Columbia College quidditch team and #GoRenegades
