The Finch College Alumni Association Foundation Scholarships

Community college women in New York, New Jersey & Connecticut are offered $5000 grants to transfer to accredited four-year colleges in the United States. Generous scholarship funds have also been established to honor the memory of our Finch College graduates:

Four Freya Moskowitz Stern Scholarships

Two Laura Rollins Hockaday Scholarships

The $5,000 award and criteria are the same for all.


Annually, a female student at this secondary school - which also was founded by Jessica Cosgrave - is the beneficiary of partial tuition. This award is fully funded by The Birch Wathen Lenox School and is awarded at the school's discretion.
