Chelsie Worth Celebration Endowed Scholarship

The purpose of this scholarship is to continue Chelsie’s fierce commitment to and pride in the ability of an MSU Denver education to deliver a life-changing opportunity for a student.

Chelsie Marie Worth was a passionate bright light in the MSU Denver community. She was committed to science and to information visualization. And she was a brilliant cello player. Her paths of study touched on many fields at MSU Denver and she ultimately found her home in environmental science and geographic information systems. She was a dedicated and valued staff member of MSU Denver’s Center for Advanced Visualization and Experiential Analysis. An endowed scholarship lasts into perpetuity. By crowdsourcing contributions in Chelsie’s name, we create an open and accessible way by which we band together to carry forward her light and legacy to generations of current and future students.
