About the Fund

Josh Burdette MemorialThe Josh Burdette Student Entertainment Events (SEE) Memorial Scholarship seeks to honor the many contributions that Josh Burdette (PSYCH ‘98) made to SEE during his years as an undergraduate student leader of the organization as well as his continued involvement as an alumni volunteer and mentor.

Josh served as SEE's Security Director from 1996 to 1998. A Maryland Honors graduate with a degree in psychology, Josh was a steady presence in the SEE office and the Adele H. Stamp Student Union during his time on campus and beyond. After graduating, Josh joined the security crew full-time working his way up to Head of Security at the 9:30 Club in Washington DC where he worked until his death on September 1, 2013 at the age of 36.

Josh's many friends and supporters from SEE were inspired by his devotion to the organization that helped to shape his life and career.

The Josh Burdette Student Entertainment Events (SEE) Memorial Scholarship was created to uphold Josh's legacy of knowledge and love of learning. The scholarship will support a SEE student leader with financial need and will be annually awarded in Josh's honor.
