B’nai B’rith Announces 2015 Sally R. Schneider Scholarship for New York City-Area Student
B’nai B’rith International will award the annual Sally R. Schneider Scholarship to a deserving Jewish female graduate student in the spring of 2015. Applications are now being accepted.
Sally Schneider, born in Brooklyn in 1919, was a voracious reader and a passionate supporter of Israel who felt strongly that women should be independent and educated. She and her husband, George, were longtime B’nai B’rith members. In 1998, after Sally’s death, the family set up an endowment fund in her name.
This scholarship, of approximately $1,000, will be awarded to an individual from among the applicants meeting the following qualifications:
1) A deserving Jewish female graduate student; 2) In the metropolitan New York area; 3) Currently enrolled in and attending a graduate program (by Jan. 31, 2015) in a field benefiting humankind, including, but not limited to medicine, medical research, education, social work, psychology, chiropractic medicine, nursing, or public health; and 4) The candidate should demonstrate an involvement or interest in Jewish culture.
To apply, please submit a statement (no more than two pages, typed and double-spaced, including home address and email) indicating your qualifications for this scholarship to Ben Simkovich: BSimkovich@bnaibrith.org. For questions, please call 202-857-6657.
