The Linda Rie Cohen Scholarship Fund

The Linda Rie Cohen Scholarship Fund

The Linda Rie Cohen Scholarship Fund is an annual endowment of $10,000.00 from a generous gift by Fred Cohen to honor the memory of his late wife, who passed away in June 2013.  Linda was a dedicated member of the North Fork Reform Synagogue and a North Fork enthusiast. She loved the people and the food of the North Fork and had a lifelong passion for music, the arts and education. The scholarships are administered by the North Fork Reform Synagogue and are for the benefit of the North Fork Jewish community.

The minimum scholarship award is $1,000.00, with a maximum of $5,000.00. Scholarships may be awarded on a subsequent basis, but are not guaranteed.  Applications are open to individuals of any age who wish to pursue continued education in the field of the Arts or Sciences and can demonstrate passion and accomplishments in their chosen field of study. Priority will be given to applicants who are current or past residents of the North Fork, as well as family members and those with a connection to the North Fork.

A complete application and all supporting documents must be received by the North Fork Reform Synagogue by May 15, 2021.  The Linda Rie Cohen Scholarship awards announcement will be made on June 30, 2021.
