Ruthie Research Grant
Ruthie Abend Krigel Tivol was born in Dubienka, Poland in 1929. In December 1938, Ruthie, her sister, and mother joined her father who had immigrated to Kansas City several years earlier. Ruthie always understood how fortunate her family was to escape WWII and the Holocaust. She never forgot those who were left behind.
As an ardent supporter of MCHE, Ruthie created a legacy — including the Ruthie Tivol Graduate Research Fund which supports scholars conducting graduate research on the Holocaust or a related subject.
Graduate students researching the Holocaust and related history may apply for a grant of $500-$1,000 to support their research costs. Upon completion of their research, they will make a public presentation based on their research in the Kansas City community.
