Kyle Matthew Waterbury-Drake Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship is established in loving memory of Kyle Matthew Waterbury-Drake who was a philosopher, poet, humble spirit, intensely caring, and a creative mind. He thought that caring for others was not only his personal commitment but his philosophical commitment as well. He understood that we find wisdom in living our lives well and in helping others do the same. This is part of how he thought of what it meant to be a philosopher, and what he called “philosophical lifework." He wrote, “The full philosopher engages and integrates two species of work which correspond to the two extreme projects of philosophy: the work upon the self (i.e., the care of the self), and the work upon thought (i.e. the care of the cosmos).” Scholarships will be given to students who have interest in philosophy and poetry within the arts/humanities and English majors.
