Hofstra Day of Giving might be over, but you can still support Hofstra Students!
Max Kolb Endowed Memorial Scholarship
Max Kolb Endowed Scholarship

The Max Kolb Endowed Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Hofstra film student Max Benjamin Kolb.  The scholarship is intended to assist promising students by lessening the financial burden of producing their junior and senior films, which can cost on average $5,000 to $6,000. 

From 2002 to 2017, senior television students produced the Friends of Max Kolb Telethon - a 90-minute show, featuring live music and comedy performances that raised more than $70,000 in support of the Max Kolb Endowed Scholarship.  The first telethon was a collaboration between Max’s film and television classmates, led by Laura Fu ‘02, and was produced by Dr. Peter Gershon’s RTVF 165 Advanced Television Production class.  Dr. Gershon continued to serve as the telethon’s faculty advisor until his retirement.

More than 100 Hofstra film students have benefitted from the Max Kolb scholarship since it was established, and your gift will support many more aspiring filmmakers for years to come.
