APAP Endowed Scholarship Fund

Sally Silvers, AB ’69, former National APAP Chair, and her late husband Robert Silvers, AB ’66, established the first APAP endowed scholarship fund in 2001 in honor of Sally’s parents, Myra T. and Leroy Kopolow.

The APAP Endowed Scholarship provides support for two students annually who interviewed with APAP and received a high interview rating, show academic and extracurricular promise, and demonstrate significant unmet financial need. As an endowed fund, the APAP scholarship will provide student support in perpetuity. Your gift of any amount will bolster the university’s ability to admit and enroll outstanding students with financial need. If you would like more information, please contact APAP at (314 or 800) 935-4826.
