Francis H. Brown African Scholarship Fund
Dr. Frank Brown was an esteemed member of The Leakey Foundation family for more than 20 years. We are honored to work in partnership with his daughters, Elise Brown Ersoy and Erica Brown Gaddis, to fulfill one of Frank’s wishes, the creation and funding of the Francis H. Brown African Scholarship Fund.
Frank spent his career working in Africa, and now the Francis H. Brown African Scholarship Fund will make it possible for young Kenyan and Ethiopian scholars to pursue projects in the earth sciences and botany that have importance to the study of human origins.
Frank Brown personally contributed and raised over $200,000 to start this program. We wish to honor his intentions to grow this fund to $1 million.
“When someone is trying to climb a wall, sometimes they need a little boost.” – Frank Brown
