Fond memories of an Edison High School math teacher lead a group of Edison graduates to establish a scholarship in the teachers' name. Each year, an outstanding Edison High School math student is selected to receive a generous gift of $1,000 from The Vincent N. Fazio Memorial Fund to help them with postgraduate studies.

A second source of support, the REF Founder's Fund, supplies a $500 grant per year to a student who is college-bound and is an active part of the Rochester community- particularly, active in public service activities. Both grant recipients are selected in the spring.

A previous series of grants were launched by the  Monroe High School Class of 1960 as a gift to the Monroe High School community. Starting in 2012, the fund at REF donated $500 per year to three students. The Fund concluded its support in 2017. 

Do you know a student who could benefit from one of these grants? Interested in creating a fund of your own? Please contact us! We'd love to work with you.

Looking to give back to your alma mater? Want to help support the academic success of a determined college student? Designate your donation to REF for the Fazio or Founder's funds.
