Meet Our Latest OppU Achiever: Kelly Gluckman!

OppU Achievers Scholarship


Name: Kelly Gluckman

College: University of California, Los Angeles

Major: World Arts and Cultures

Graduation Date: 2018

Congratulations to our latest OppU Achiever, Kelly Gluckman! We are so thrilled to award our fall $2,500 scholarship to someone who has accomplished so much—and will go on to accomplish so much more.

The OppU Achievers Scholarship honors those who overcome adversity and create opportunity for themselves and others. And without a doubt, our latest recipient embodies this ethos.

After receiving a devastating diagnosis, Kelly devoted her life to serving others through advocacy and education. She’s appeared on national television, served as an ambassador for an international nonprofit, and acted locally through a theater group that performs in high schools.

Currently a senior at UCLA, Kelly is studying arts activism and working on a thesis to evaluate the impact of sex education. After graduating this summer, she’ll teach an undergraduate class that explores the ways in which stigma can be fought through art. Ultimately her goal is to work in health care, continue to advocate through public speaking, and eventually return to school for a PhD that will inform her life’s work.

Congrats to Kelly, and thanks to all who applied—there were many impressive candidates.
