Scholarship Program Specialist
Ben is a native of Rochester, Minnesota and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at St. Olaf College. He then completed a year of full-time volunteer service at Denver's SAME Cafe through the Urban Servant Corps, which ignited his interest in launching a career in the nonprofit sector. His service experience opened the door for him to Marquette University's Trinity Fellows Program, a graduate work-study fellowship for aspiring urban leaders who are committed to social and economic justice. As a Trinity Fellow, Ben earned a Master of Arts degree in Communication while working as a graduate assistant at a Milwaukee nonprofit. Following graduation, he returned to Denver and was thrilled to join DSF, where he is responsible for administrative support and communications for the DSF Scholarship.
