About

The Richard A. Horovitz Fund for Professional Development was established in memory of Richard Horovitz, a Ford Foundation program officer who died in 1991. One of his last acts was to write a check to start the scholarship fund. This was augmented by contributions from friends and associates, and by a $300,000 contribution from his father, James Horovitz, in 1994. Income from this contribution provides support for awards to the grantees and IIE’s administrative costs.
