Betsy and Bezalel Haimson
This scholarship was established by Betsy & Bezalel Haimson to support talented Master of Social Work students. Betsy was able to attend the University of Minnesota School of Social Work on a federal grant. This financial support was essential to her success and thus inspired her desire to support other graduate students.
