Richard L. Brodsky Scholarship for Public Service
The Richard L. Brodsky Scholarship for Public Service was established to honor Brodsky's legacy as a committed public servant. Brodsky, a 14-term New York State assemblyman from
Westchester, chaired the Environmental Conservation, Corporations and Authorities, and Government Oversight committees.
Brodsky served the lower Hudson Valley for 27 years in the Assembly, where he brought forward nation-leading investigations,
public interest lawsuits, and championed environmental, government accountability, and consumer protection legislation. He continued to participate in public
service after his retirement. He passed away in April 2020.
