Janet Feirberg Award

Janet M. Fierberg Scholarship 2016

The Janet M. Fierberg Scholarship Fund in Sociology was endowed by I. Martin Fierberg and Janet M. Fierberg, an alumna of UConn who studied Sociology and had a career in Social Work.  Two scholarships of a minimum of $2,000* each will be awarded this year to outstanding students in their Junior or Senior year at UConn who are planning to pursue graduate study in Social Work or Sociology or first year students in the University of Connecticut School of Social Work.

Applicants must be sociology majors or minors, first year students in the University of Connecticut School of Social Work, or students who have applied to and will be accepted into the University of Connecticut School of Social Work.  All awards will consider need and future professional promise.

*University departmental scholarships and awards are posted in the University of Connecticut Financial Aid System and are disbursed to the student’s fee bill account.  If a student has already been packaged for Financial Aid, the addition of a scholarship(s) can result in adjustments to that aid.  If a student has a balance on their fee bill, the scholarship funds will be applied to that balance and the student may request a refund for any remaining funds.
