Each year Syracuse University honors the talents of outstanding faculty or students through a program made possible by a generous gift from Judith Greenberg Seinfeld ’56, a distinguished alumna of Syracuse University and member of the University’s Board of Trustees.
The Seinfeld Scholar Program recognizes those who have made outstanding contributions to the beauty of the world, to human values and to ending human abuse anywhere in the world, and acknowledges the recipient’s passion for excellence, creativity and originality in academic or artistic fields. Those chosen are determined to have the ability to motivate and bring out the best in others. Designation as a Seinfeld Scholar is intended to encourage and stimulate future contributions to society. Students are eligible for the award every three years. Each recipient receives a cash prize.
Justine Paul ’18, a University Scholar and Remembrance Scholar, is one of two students to be named a Seinfeld Scholar this year. The other recipient is Tammy Hong. You can read more about both recipients in this recent article from Syracuse University News.
