Madison’s brother and fund representative Camden Olivero stated that Madison often talked about his life-changing experience studying abroad in Barcelona. This enlightening phase enabled him to thrive in his intellectual and personal life. He made deep connections with people from all over the world, experienced fine cuisine, and learned about many cultures while he was overseas.

According to fund spokesperson John O Donnell, “it is our honor to memorialize Madison by offering this scholarship so others can have similar experiences.” We are eager to review applications and assist students with their study abroad experiences!
