The Broome and Allen Scholarship Fund

The Broome & Allen Scholarship was founded over 60 years ago by a group of Sephardic businessmen determined to provide a summer vacation to children who otherwise would not be able to escape the hot and humid New York City summers. Over the years, the fund has enabled hundreds of children to enjoy their summer vacations far from the city's heat. As times and circumstances changed, however, the scholarship evolved accordingly.

Today, the Broome & Allen Scholarship provides grants to undergraduate and graduate students of Sephardic heritage and students concentrating in Sephardic studies. Each recipient of a Broome and Allen Scholarship is part of an elite group from three continents who have been awarded this grant for tuition assistance in their academic studies as a result of their outstanding scholarship and community service; over one hundred grants have been awarded since 2004.

Criteria:

The Broome & Allen Scholarship is awarded to students of Sephardic origin or those working in Sephardic studies. High School seniors, undergraduate and graduate degree candidates as well as those doing research projects will be considered. It is awarded for one year and must be renewed for successive years. The student or researcher does not have to be living in the United States or be a U.S. citizen, but should be doing their studies or work in the U.S.
