Event Description

The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center is the VOICE OF TOLERANCE on Long Island. The Center, in cooperation with the Claire Friedlander Family Foundation and the Police Departments of Nassau and Suffolk Counties, is pleased to announce the second annual “Friedlander Upstander Award.”


The $2,500 education scholarship will be awarded to one student each from Nassau and Suffolk Counties, who has shown her/himself to be an Upstander against intolerance in any of its forms.  The student’s action as an Upstander could be one of intervention or prevention.  The award will be designated for educational purposes. Representatives of the Claire Friedlander Family Foundation, the Center, and the Police Departments will present the award to both recipients at a special ceremony during our Tolerance Benefit in May.


The Claire Friedlander Family Foundation was established by Claire Friedlander, a Holocaust Survivor whose life was saved by people who took a stand against prejudice. This award honors her life and embodies her legacy.



Middle school and high school students are eligible. 

Students must be nominated by an adult in their school or community. 

Both the student and adult must each submit a one-page summary explaining why the student should be the recipient of the “Friedlander Upstander Award.”  Nominations may be submitted by a teacher, guidance counselor or community leader who has knowledge of the student as an Upstander.

Summaries must include details on how the student took action against intolerance or promoted acceptance and respect within their school or community. 


Application packets are available on our website.
