Today, September 11th, marks the 21st anniversary of that tragic day in 2001 when the Twin Towers fell. Out of their ruin, and in loving memory of one of that day’s victims, Jérôme Robert Lohez, the idea of creating a scholarship program was born.
We were very happy to resume our Annual Scholarship Awards Gala on May 9th this year, held at the National Arts Club, after a two-year pause due to COVID-19.
Scholarships were awarded to Aleksandra Gracheva, Saboura Salari Rad, Shardul Shinde, and Victor Trolet. The Jacques Barzun Award for Distinguished Contributions to Trans-Cultural Scholarly Exchange was bestowed upon Dr. Lisa Rosen-Metch, Dean of General Studies at Columbia University.
