Stonegraber Scholarship

Mrs. Stonegraber was an occupational therapist in the Buffalo and Rochester areas and director of occupational therapy at the Rochester Psychiatric Center at the time of her retirement in 1959. 

Established in memory of Eleanor C. and David P. Stonegraber, the Stonegraber Scholarship Fund supports occupational and physical therapy students entering their last year of study. Awards typically range from $500 to $2000.

To qualify, a student must:

  • demonstrate financial need
  • show academic promise
  • have a firm commitment to the profession

However, students interested in the Stonegraber Scholarship should file a financial statement with the Financial Aid Office during the fall semester of their fourth year.
