Alumni gift establishes new scholarship fund

February 11, 2013

Steven Brody ’73 and Karen Krause Brody ’71, ’80g have made a $25,000 gift to the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences to create an endowed fund to assist students facing unexpected financial challenges.

The gift will be used as “an emergency scholarship fund to support junior or senior students with a minimum grade point average of 3.0 majoring in a degree program in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences whose ability to continue at New Paltz is threatened by a sudden change in financial circumstances, such as parental job loss,” according to the endowment agreement.

“This is a wonderfully generous gift that will enhance educational opportunities for our students,” said Jim Schiffer, dean of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences. “It is a particularly timely gift as it addresses a real-life need that arises more often than might be recognized.”
