Since its incorporation in 1989 through 2016, the NY Grace LeGendre Endowment Fund Inc (GLEF), has awarded over $156,000 in fellowships to 147 NYS women. Of these, ninety five were working toward a Master’s and fifty two toward a doctorate. They were enrolled in forty-nine diverse fields of graduate study.

Fellowships are awarded annually for graduate study to qualified women. The number and amount of the fellowships vary from year to year. The awards are presented at a luncheon at the GLEF Annual Board Meeting in Albany, NY in May 2016.
