Albany Law School recently received $23,000 in funding from the Slomo and Cindy Silvian Foundation, bringing the total amount contributed by the foundation to its scholarship fund to $100,000 since 2008.
The Slomo and Cindy Silvian Foundation Scholarship Fund annually provides a scholarship to an Albany Law School student interested in studying health law while gaining hands-on experience in the school’s Health Law Clinic. To date, four students have benefited from the fund.
“The scholarship fund helps make sure that the foundation’s money is put to use in meaningful way, advancing both the field of health law and the future of young law students,” said Daniel Komansky, Esq., President of the Slomo and Cindy Silvian Foundation and a 1982 Albany Law graduate.
The foundation, based in Melville, Long Island, focuses on education, services for children, Jewish philanthropic endeavors, and health care and research.
“Generous partners such as the Slomo and Cindy Silvian Foundation are invaluable in helping the law school cultivate a better educational experience for its students, which in turn helps them become better-rounded, practice-ready attorneys upon graduation,” said James Kellerhouse, Interim Assistant Dean of Institutional Advancement for Albany Law School.
