Dorothy Ann Helm Memorial Scholarship

Celebrating a Study Abroad Legacy

A fundraising campaign for College of Staten Island

Dorothy Ann Helm 1946-2020

Dorothy Ann Helm, or Ann, as she was best known, was the esteemed and beloved Executive Director of the Center for International Service at the College of Staten Island from 1990-2013, where she created many innovative international programs for CSI and The City University of New York with a multitude of international partners.  

Ann's passion for exploring the world was ignited while she was an undergraduate at Lewis and Clark College. She experienced a life-changing study abroad year in Japan that led her to pursue a career in international education.

In appreciation for Ann's distinguished career and passionate commitment that opened up a world of life-changing study abroad for countless students, we invite you to honor her legacy for the generations to come. Your gift, in any amount, is most welcome and will help to establish a memorial scholarship in her name.
