Alexander Technique funding available

The Performing Arts Department in Arts & Sciences is taking applications from University faculty, staff and students who wish to receive funding assistance to study Alexander Technique.

The method, which focuses on improving body movements and physical function, commonly is studied by athletes and performing artists, as well as by those simply hoping to prevent unconscious habits that can interfere with good health and physical activity.

Deadline for applications is Jan. 1, with awards to be announced in mid-to-late February.

A scholarship has been made possible by a donation from Samuel E. Schechter in memory of his son, David.
