​Please join us as we celebrate this year's amazing scholarship recipients, who each in their own way uphold Anne Frank's humanitarian ideals. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's Spirit of Anne Frank Awards will be presented virtually.


Many thanks to Les and Sybil Rosenberg for sponsoring the 2020 Spirit of Anne Frank Awards scholarships.


Caragan Olles

2020 SAFA Scholarship - $5000

Green Bay, Wisconsin
Through "Bright Young Dyslexics," Caragan recognized that there can be a better way of communicating, improving education, and working to overturn a demoralizing stereotype that affects thousands of students. Next year, she brings her talents and dedication to the University of Miami with plans to study entrepreneurship.

Yousuf Khan

2020 SAFA Scholarship - $2500

Glendale Heights, Illinois

Yousuf Khan will pursue marketing and pre-medicine next year at Northern Illinois University and aspires to be a psychiatrist. He has been heavily involved in creating interfaith and inter-cultural dialogue within his high school, Glenbard West. As a freshman he worked to host a Q and A session about Islam, and as co-president of the Muslim Student Association at his high school, he has worked with leaders of the Black Student Association, Glenbard Latino Organization, and Asian Club to host a number of collaboration events where students have the opportunity to express their identities and learn about the identities of others. Yousuf has presented to the Glenbard West faculty on how to promote diversity and incorporate student identities. Yousuf is honored to be a recipient of this distinction, and is grateful for the opportunities he has had to learn about the experiences and background of his peers.

His determination to overcome obstacles and discrimination through education is exactly how we can build a more compassionate world.
