The Aaron Bleich Memorial Fund is being launched to honor a much-loved Creative Writing MFA student who tragically died just as he was completing his MFA degree. After a highly successful career in television news, Aaron had enrolled in the Adelphi Creative Writing MFA both because his health had made it impossible to continue his work as a journalist, and because he wanted to pursue different writing possibilities in nonfiction. In his memory, the fund will support one or more graduate Teaching Assistants. In honoring his example, the fund will be used to support students who have demonstrated unusual courage and perseverance in pursuit of their goals. Although financial need will be taken into consideration in selecting recipients of aid from the Fund, the quality of the candidate’s creative work and his/her potential for growth will remain paramount.
Aaron's family will be matching gifts made to the Aaron Bleich Memorial Fund, up to $1,350, to help fund two teaching assistantships.
Join us with your gift today that will make double its impact thanks to the Bleich family!
