A social justice scholarship in memory of Nikki Tishler


Why radical kindness?

Nikki Tishler dedicated her life to issues of equity and social justice, advocating for the rights of women and the LBGTQIA+ community. Her passion for advocacy and social justice started when she was a student at Fontbonne Academy. She organized the Ducks for Darfur fundraiser to aid refugees in the war-torn region of Sudan. She practiced what others have referred to as “radical kindness” and demonstrated that it's not enough to only care deeply about an issue, but that we must organize and take action to incite change. Everyone who crossed her path was inspired by her positivity, passion, and dedication to the fight against social inequality.

What is the scholarship?

In Nikki's memory, a scholarship has been created for Fontbonne Academy students who care passionately for social justice and who practical radical kindness in their everyday lives.
