Mr. Robert Rosner
Mr. Robert Rosner established the scholarship in 2006 in honor of his father, Martin Rosner. Martin Rosner was born in 1925 to Polish-Jewish immigrants and grew up in the tenements of the lower East Side and Harlem. He attended Stuyvesant High School, graduating at 15, and then Baruch College. World War II interrupted his studies, and he returned to Baruch College with the help of the GI Bill. After graduation, he attended Columbia College of Pharmacy. After many years as a pharmacist he earned a Ph.D in business and economics from the University of Chicago, while teaching at the University of Illinois College of Pharmacy and raising a family. In his career as a health economist, Dr. Rosner did epidemiologic and econometric studies for drug companies, published many articles, two books and taught at several universities and colleges. He has always been grateful to Baruch College for providing him the opportunity of an education, and his family would like to honor his memory by providing such an opportunity for a worthy first generation or immigrant student.
