Salonee Kharkar Memorial Scholarship

Salonee Kharkar was born on July 20, 1985, in India, brought up in Zambia, and studied geology at Colorado State University from 2003 to 2007. After her college graduation, she worked at Core Laboratories in Denver as a core analyst but was soon promoted to geotechnician and then to senior geotechnician.

Salonee lived by four key words – DREAM, BELIEVE, WORK, AND PERSEVERANCE. She worked hard to achieve her goals. She never gave up in the face of adversity, but took it as a challenge. She was very adventurous and lived her life to the fullest. She loved the mountains. She had decided never to move away from Denver or Colorado. Her wish has been respected; her ashes have been dispersed in the Red Rocks in Denver and immersed in the Poudre River in Fort Collins.

She lived by her motto, “Under Promise, Over Deliver.”

In her memory, her family has decided to set up an endowment that will provide scholarships to deserving students at CSU.
