Jim Burfisher Scholarship
Jim Burfisher was born in Chicago, Illinois to William and Deborah. He attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and graduated in 2003 with a degree in Economics. Jim was a kindhearted, humble person who led by example and respected those around him. After his passing in 2010, the family looked for opportunities that would allow Jim’s name to live on through worthy causes which embodied both his spirit and passion. Freshman Leaders on Campus was selected because of its reputation as a top flight leadership organization as well as its connection to Chris Featherstone, Jim’s cousin, who helped found the organization while attending UTA. The Jim Burfisher award is given annually to a member who exhibits leadership, academic excellence, and humility; the very traits which made Jim such a special person.
