The Kate Alison Bronstein Memorial Endowed Scholarship Fund was established in 2007 by Pat Gallien and David Bronstein of Houston, Texas in loving memory of their daughter, Kate Alison Bronstein.
Kate loved art, and her life has led to countless people experiencing art, both in their homes and around the world. She also found joy in helping others, so it’s only fitting that her life has created opportunities for students who followed her to Baylor to receive a helping hand as they pursue their dreams.
To hear friends and family describe Kate, one gets the feeling her legacy would make her proud. On November 14, 2007, Kate died due to a car accident while still a sophomore at Baylor; in her honor, family and friends banded to create a scholarship that helps Baylor art students study abroad.
Kate cared deeply for her friends and family. She was a strong-willed and focused individual who knew what she wanted in life and pursued it with passion. During her time at Baylor, she was double majoring in art history and international studies and was a member of Kappa Delta sorority, serving as the special events coordinator. Fellow students described Kate as ambitious, dedicated, joyful, and a friend who was always there for others. Her parents, sister and all who knew her will dearly missed Kate.
Since its inception, the Kate Alison Bronstein Memorial Scholarship Fund has provided many Baylor students with study abroad awards — helping inspire those students by immersion in other cultures as they’ve pursued their artistic dreams. The scholarship has grown thanks in part to a creative (and appropriate) method of raising funds: art auctions.
The featured art has come from a variety of sources, including original works donated by some of Kate’s Baylor professors. In addition to raising funds to aid Baylor students, the auctions have also led to many of Kate’s loved ones owning art of their own — something she certainly would have appreciated.
In 2022, on the 15th anniversary of the start of this scholarship, her family continues to dedicate time and energy to ensure that future Baylor students benefit from her time on campus. We invite you to join us in honoring this important milestone by making a gift.
