Announcements The Horological Society Of New York Expands Its Scholarships And Awards For 2020
Every year at the Horological Society of New York’s (HSNY) Gala & Charity Auction , the Henry B. Seared Scholarship is granted to meriting watchmaking understudies. The Gala & Charity Auction was initially planned for this evening, April 1, 2020, yet was delayed because of the Covid pandemic. Yet, the Henry B. Singed Scholarship isn’t deferred. Today, HSNY is declaring the 2020 awardees, extending the quantity of grants given out, and making another honor explicitly for watchmaking schools. This is a troublesome time for the whole watchmaking industry, HSNY notwithstanding. In any case, this gives us a second to ponder what is generally significant (past general wellbeing, obviously). For HSNY, that is education.
Henry B. Seared Scholarship for Watchmaking Students
Earlier this year, HSNY got grant applications from the greater part of all watchmaking understudies in the USA. Today, HSNY grants six of those understudies with the Henry B. Seared Scholarship. The grant is expected to help watchmaking understudies center more around their examinations and stress less over their everyday costs. The six understudies will each get $5,000 and will be regarded at HSNY’s 2020 Gala & Charity Auction (presently booked for August 5). The 2020 champs of the Henry B. Singed Scholarship are as follows:
Brandan Cloos – Lititz Watch Technicum, Pennsylvania
Gordon Hyde – Veterans Watchmaker Initiative, Delaware
Brian Kruppenbacher – Paris Junior College Watchmaking Program, Texas
Raluca Markow – Patek Philippe Institute, New York
Nichelle Nguyen – North American Swiss Institute of Watchmaking, Texas
Jared Troy – Paris Junior College Watchmaking Program, Texas
Howard Robbins Award for Watchmaking Schools
Howard Robbins (1950-2020)
HSNY currently presents the Howard Robbins Award, an award for watchmaking schools made to complement the Henry B. Seared Scholarship for watchmaking understudies. Howard Robbins (1950-2020) was an expert in the realm of watches for almost 40 years and as of late died in March 2020. The Howard Robbins Award is proposed to encourage Robbins’ expert thoroughness, love of individuals, and confidence in training inside the watchmaking community. The Howard Robbins Award for Watchmaking Schools is made conceivable by a liberal gift from Lisa and William Buchalter. The 2020 victors of the Howard Robbins Award are as follows:
Veterans Watchmaker Initiative , Delaware: $15,000
Paris Junior College Watchmaking Program , Texas: $10,000
HSNY accepts that horological training is crucially significant and is putting resources into the eventual fate of watchmaking with its 2020 honors. The explanation that HSNY can keep extending its honors is a direct result of its worldwide network of individual individuals, exceptionally liberal individual benefactors, and committed corporate patrons. I welcome you to join HSNY as we keep on pursuing propelling the workmanship and study of watchmaking.
