The Sam Bredow Memorial Fund was established to assist Jewish students in the Emory College of Arts and Sciences who are in need of financial aid and who have demonstrated leadership within one or more of the recognized Jewish organizations on the Emory campus and/or within the greater Emory community. Sam Bredow served as an advisor to Tau Epsilon Phi, Mu chapter, at Emory University for over 35 years. He was a friend and mentor to literally thousands of students, many of whom viewed him as a member of the family. This annual award has been set up to honor the memory of this man who gave so much to the university.
