Home > Zober Scholarship

Sisters Efrat and Noa Dvir stand with Joshua Schonfeld who presented Noa with the Janet Ruth Zober Scholarship.
The Janet Ruth Zober Special Scholarship is a $3500 award, offered annually.

The purpose of this scholarship is to honor the memory of Janet Ruth Zober, a young woman who became physically challenged and hearing impaired when she was a senior in college. In her memory, we are offering a scholarship to help a physically-challenged and/or hearing-impaired person, or someone who is preparing for a career working with the physically challenged.

The 2003 recipient of The Janet Ruth Zober Scholarship is Noa Dvir, originally from Raanana, Israel. Noa is a student at Gallaudet University.

Noa has been studying at Gallaudet since 1998. Prior to her formal admission to Gallaudet University in 2000 she spent a year and a half improving her English skills. Noa was faced with a dual challenge - she needed to learn how to read and write English and had to acquire a totally new sign language as Israeli Sign Language and American Sign Language are very different languages.

Noa's goal is to complete her bachelor's degree in elementary education and continue on for a master's degree in deaf education. Ultimately she plans to return to Israel and become a teacher of deaf children.

The application deadline for the Zober Scholarship for academic year 2005-2006 has been extended to Friday, April 8.

The application is available online in both Word Document format and HTML format.
