GSRRE announces The Novak Scholarship Program launching in the fall of 2013, which will support students of Latino origin who excel academically. The program is named after the Rev. Vincent M. Novak, S.J., the founding dean of the Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education, and the Rev. Joseph Novak, S.J., a long-time faculty member and interim dean.
“Our mission is to provide financial support and mentoring to Latino students with a desire to minister to and serve as leaders within the community as religious educators, pastoral ministers or counselors and spiritual directors,” says C. Colt Anderson, dean of the Graduate School of Religion and Religious Education. “The Novak Scholarship Program will provide an added incentive that channels students to strive for academic excellence and encourages the Latino community to participate in Fordham’s high-quality programs that cater to distinctive and diverse viewpoints.”
