The mission of the Amy Adina Schulman Memorial Fund is two-fold. First and foremost, to provide grants to individuals, young adults who volunteer or intern for progressive social action projects or programs in an area of their interest and commitment in Israel and across the world. Grants are provided to commemorate the brief but vibrant life of Amy Adina Schulman, a twenty year old college student, a neuropsychology major, and an activist for ten years in the progressive Labor Zionist Youth Movement, Habonim-Dror. Adina died suddenly in 1987 from a burst aneurysm while a student in her junior year at Rutgers University.
The second part of our mission is to sponsor an annual lecture on a relevant and timely topic related to the Fund's educational mission, with consideration to Adina's commitment to a vital Israel with values including equality and human rights, pluralism, social justice, and always a concern for the physical and civic environment.
The Amy Adina Schulman Memorial Fund is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
