Announcing the 2024 Holocaust Museum Houston Yom HaShoah Scholarship Recipient

Holocaust Museum Houston is pleased to offer a scholarship for high school students that honors the memory of those who perished during the Holocaust. The scholarship is being presented as a part of the Museum’s citywide commemoration of Yom HaShoah (Day of Remembrance) for the victims of the Holocaust.

The scholarship is open to high school students in grades 9-12 whose school is located within the Region 4 Education Service Center area (see http://www.esc4.net/). The student selected to receive the scholarship must be available to attend the Yom HaShoah commemoration service on Sunday, May 5, 2024.

Students who apply for the scholarship must submit a 500 to 1,000-word essay answering the question, “Why is it important to remember the Holocaust today?”

The Museum would like to congratulate the winner of the 2024 Holocaust Museum Houston Yom HaShoah Scholarship competition, Gaby Brown, a sophomore at The Emery/Weiner School.

The essays were reviewed by our committee. The scholarship is a one-time award of $500 and is being presented with the generous support of the David Barg Endowment Fund and the Morgan Family Endowment Fund. For more information, please contact the museum at education@hmh.org or 713-527-1642.
