As a recipient of an award or scholarship, winners have become a part of the select few who have demonstrated outstanding dedication to their careers, academics, and communities. We hope to hear about all of their accomplishments, goals and, how their award or scholarship has made a difference in their career and life.
The Alumni Winners Club is a group in which our winners can share, grow, and connect with fellow scholars and award winners. We would like to help our recipients stay connected and build upon their success.
“Having been presented with my scholarship by Mayor Koch himself, I’ve always had a special affinity for him as he was the first public figure that I’d ever personally met.His friendliness and the ease with which he spoke coupled with professionalism and intelligence was something that struck me that day at City Hall many years ago. He was the epitome of a New Yorker and will be sorely missed. As an Attorney, my career has been primarily based in Civil Litigation. I’m presently with a firm where I’m afforded the opportunity to combine a sense of compassion with tough advocacy skills through my work in the areas of Matrimonial/Family Law and Trusts & Estates.”

“As graduation approaches, I grow more and more excited about my future. I am currently a finalist for a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship to Spain and I was also accepted into the 2013 Teach for America Boston Corps. Whether September finds me in Madrid or Boston, I know I will be waking up every morning to a life that is meaningful beyond anything I ever imagined. I am so happy and fortunate to be the recipient of a College Scholar Award because it has provided me with the financial support to pursue whichever direction my life takes next … and I can’t wait to find out!”
“Being a recipient of the Issac Liberman Public Service Award gave me a sense of fulfillment, I was finally recognized for my work on and off duty. It truly means the world to me and makes me want to continue my volunteer efforts for as long as I can. I cannot thank the association enough for honoring me with such a prestigious award.”

“The scholarship that I have received from the Hundred Year association has afforded me the opportunity to pay off some of my student loans. This is a huge deal because, as most, I am not looking forward to leaving college in debt. It has helped me get one step closer to receiving a dual undergraduate degree in possibly economics and international relations in the hopes of going on to graduate school to receive my masters. I am very grateful for my award.”

“On the surface, my scholarships have allowed me to pay for the necessities of college, such as textbooks and lab fees, and have also allowed me to shoulder some of my tuition bill for my parents. But on a deeper level, I would say that they’ve been helping me grow as person by allowing me to take more financial responsibility for my own learning than I could have had I not won them. To me, that personal growth is the greatest thing my scholarships have allowed me to accomplish. And by having less to worry about when it comes to the cost of my college education, I’ve been able to focus my attention on my studies, my personal passions, and opportunities for volunteer work. I consider myself very fortunate to have crossed paths with the Hundred Year Association and to have the blessing of benefiting from the donors’ generosity over the years.“

“The Hundred Year Association scholarship allows me to pursue my academic goals, while also encouraging that I intertwine those goals with what I love to do non-academically. I just completed working for an internet tech company in Jerusalem, Israel, and will be studying in Copenhagen, Denmark for the fall semester. There I will be studying Biotechnology, and will be taking three art classes. At Brown University I am in Harmonic Motion, college hill’s hottest co-ed a capella group, and by far it is my proudest accomplishment at school. I’m a huge proponent of the arts and am hoping my time studying in Copenhagen will help my appreciation grow even more.”
“With my family’s middle income background and the increasing cost of education, paying for college is a tall order. As a freshman in college, the Hundred Year Association scholarship will help me alleviate some of the financial burden from my parents. It will also allow me to spend money on other special opportunities, like studying abroad, hopefully, at Oxford. Because I hope to one day pursue a career as a public defender, this scholarship will also allow my family to put away additional resources for law school. Overall, this unique scholarship will give me the peace of mind financially and allow me to focus more on my studies and my future career as a lawyer. I am so honored to receive this scholarship. Thank you so much to the Hundred Years Association for providing their generous support!”
