Jane R. Glaser Scholarship

The Jane R. Glaser Scholarship Fund in the School of Public Affairs provides financial support to an undergraduate SPA student. Income from the fund (approximately $2,500) will be awarded annually to an undergraduate student for the purpose of spending at least one semester studying abroad in Israel at the Hebrew University PLC. Scholarships awarded by the fund will be applied solely to the cost of attending Hebrew University. Patricia L. Glaser, BA/SPA'69, established this scholarship in honor of her mother, Jane R. Glaser. Ms. Glaser currently practices law as a partner with the law offices of Christensen, Miller, Fink, Jacobs, Glaser, Weil & Shapiro, LLP.
