The Richard A. Horovitz Fund for Professional Development

The Richard A. Horovitz Fund for Professional Development was established in memory of Richard Horovitz, a Ford Foundation program officer who died in 1991.

The Horovitz Fund is dedicated to African artists and scholars in the humanities and social sciences. A one-time award is granted to one or two students for graduate study for a 12 month period. The amount of the award varies from year to year depending on the endowment's market performance, but normally ranges from $6,000 to $12,000.
