About The Courtney Everts Mykytyn Memorial Scholarship

In memory of Dr. Courtney Everts Mykytyn, this scholarship is intended to support seniors in the Franklin Dual-Language Academy (FDLA), in Los Angeles, CA. Dr. Everts Mykytyn devoted more than a decade of her life to her community’s schools, first beginning at Aldama Elementary, and then a few blocks up the road to Franklin.

She helped found FDLA, the middle-school on Franklin’s campus, and eventually helped extend the program into the high school magnet program.

Her work evolved into founding and managing the international 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Integrated Schools, which continues to advocate for positive school integration across our education system.

After she passed away in late 2019, Dr. Everts Mykytyn’s family and friends wished to continue to support students in her name through this scholarship.
