The Bryce William Halbert Scholarship

Bryce was a loving father, husband, son, brother, and dear friend to countless people around the world. In life, he felt deeply for people and was always willing and open to lend a helping hand whenever possible. In 1992 Bryce and his father Bill were able to spend an unforgettable month in East Africa.  It was a life changing experience for them both with the people and diverse cultures leaving a lasting impression.

In 2012, Bryce’s life was cut tragically short at the age of 43 during a family vacation with his wife and four young children. Since his passing, Bryce’s family has searched for the right opportunity to memorialize him and all that was meaningful to him, including his passion for helping others, international travel, and community.

In 2018, a perfect opportunity presented itself to create the Bryce William Halbert Scholarship in association with the Perennial Fellowship program. It remembers the time Bryce spent with his father in East Africa and honors his deep sense of community by helping to build leadership skills in African men and women who will utilize those skills in the respective communities they serve.

Bryce’s legacy will live on through these African leaders who are advancing such causes as girls education, the promotion of democracy, and the eradication of poverty.  All of which can ultimately have a global impact.

The club was started in Dana Point, California by Tess Halbert, Bryce’s 16-year old daughter along with Sydni Harden. The club board members are Danielle Ryan, Liza Charles, and Katie Munger. The objective has been to nurture both groups of young women with the inner and outer resources to pursue lives of purpose and to advance social good. The “Global Minded Women Leadership Club” will align with iLEAP for support in making the global connection between young women both within Dana Hills and globally.

What is Their Goal?

Their goal is to raise $5,795.00. This is the amount it will cost to provide a scholarship to a young woman leader in an emerging county the opportunity to participate in the Perennial Global Leadership Fellowship program, where that leader will learn valuable leadership skills that they can go back and apply in their country. This scholarship will make an incredible difference in someone’s life, their community, and it is a beautiful way to continue to honor Bryce.

Your support to The Bryce William Halbert Scholarship supports fellows like Gertrude Zoe Kabwazi from Malawi:

Gertrude wants to live a purposeful life that leaves footprints for her children, her neighbours, her community, and her country to follow. She is the Country Director of Advancing Girls In Education (AGE) Africa. AGE Africa focuses on the empowerment of Malawian girls through education. Their mission is to provide life-changing opportunities for young women in Malawi through targeted initiatives in education, mentorship and leadership development. The organization’s vision is that all girls in Africa will have equal access to secondary education and that young scholars will be empowered to finish school, leverage their education into viable opportunities for earned income and to self-advocate for their own life choices. Gertrude’s vision in life is to live like a seed; a seed that continues to sustain, nurture, grow, mentor, and support.
