2014 Berla Scholarship Awarded

I am pleased and honored to announce that Diane DeSimone, Stony Brook Class of 2015 is the winner of the 2014 Rozalia and Emil Berla Scholarship Fund.

I started The Rozalia and Emil Berla Memorial Scholarship Fund at my alma mater, Stony Brook University.  This scholarship is named for the two greatest people I ever knew, my maternal grandparents who both survived the Holocaust.

Many of you in the retirement plan industry have contributed already and you have my thanks. If you can spare just a couple of bucks towards this worthwhile scholarship, I would greatly appreciate it.

$1,000 isn’t much, but for a student attending such a great school, it’s a substantial step in paying tuition.

You can donate online through this link. All you need to do to make sure the scholarship gets the money is to type “Berla” in the fund designation.

You can mail any contributions to

Send to Jane McArthur c/o College of Arts & Sciences, E3320 Melville Library, Stony Brook, New York  11794-3391.  The Berla Scholarship should be noted on the memo line of your donation.

All gifts will be noted with a tax receipt.

Again I appreciate any help in raising money for such a good cause.
