Applications for the newly incorporated Shapiro Foundation have been issued by Secretary Harry S. Albert. The executive board of the Foundation will receive applications until July 15 from students desiring to secure the four scholarship benefits offered by the fund.

The Foundation was set up last week by Max J. Shapiro and Benjamin Shapiro, brothers, New York factors, who are seeking to give to others what they could not obtain themselves: a college education. They have obligated themselves for at least $2,000 a year, stating, at the same time, that they expect the fund to be increased until more than four students will be able to enjoy the Foundation’s benefits.

The fund is being administered by the following trustees: Philip Dimond, president of the “Y”; Jacob Katz, president of Barnert Hospital; County Park Commissioner Herman Geller, Mrs. Edward S. Albert, executive director of the “Y,” and Abe J. Greene, city editor of the Paterson Evening News.

Officers of the Foundation are David L. Cole, president; Dimond, treasurer, and Albert, secretary.
