I am pleased to announce the creation of The Alfred Siegel Scholarship Fund. This scholarship honors the life and legacy of Alfred Siegel, the Center for Court Innovation’s deputy director who passed away earlier this year.
Over the course of his career, which, in addition to the 15 years he spent at the Center for Court Innovation included service at the New York City Department of Probation and the Bronx District Attorney’s Office, Alfred made a significant contribution to the field of justice reform. To learn more about Alfred's efforts to craft a more effective and humane approach to justice, please click here.
Created in partnership with the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, the goal of The Alfred Siegel Scholarship is to encourage and support students, including those with previous involvement in the justice system or the child welfare system, in reaching their higher education goals. The scholarship will be given to a current or prospective John Jay student to help defray tuition costs. Priority will be given to applicants who have a prior connection to the Center for Court Innovation, whether as a participant in one of our programs or as a current or former staff member. Recipients of The Alfred Siegel Scholarship will share some of the qualities that were at the center of Alfred Siegel’s work throughout his lifetime—kindness, personal integrity, and a devotion to public service and New York City.
