Our Three Winners Fund Announced

An outpouring of support has flowed into Raleigh from all over the world since the promising lives of three exceptional members of the Wolfpack family were cut short last week.

To honor the example set by married alumni Deah Barakat and Yusor Abu-Salha and sophomore architecture student Razan Abu-Salha, NC State is creating an endowed scholarship fund in their memories.

Chancellor Randy Woodson announced Friday that the endowment, called the Our Three Winners Fund, will award scholarships in the three students’ names through the Poole College of Managementthe College of Sciences and the College of Design, in perpetuity. NC State will seed endowment with initial funds and additional contributions can be made online. The scholarships will be awarded to students distinguished for their leadership, service and creativity — traits that defined the three lost members of the university community.

“Deah, Yusor and Razan exemplified the best of NC State and will forever serve as role models for our student body,” Woodson said. “Each was not only an outstanding student, but individually and as a family they lived their lives bringing joy to others, helping those in need and making the world a better place.”Chancellor Randy Woodson announced Friday that the endowment, called the Our Three Winners Fund, will award scholarships in the three students’ names through the Poole College of Managementthe College of Sciences and the College of Design, in perpetuity.

“This is our first blessing, our first moment of happiness after the tragedy,” said Mohammad Abu-Salha, father of Razan and Yusor Abu-Salha, at an event announcing the scholarship.
