Grants for Hollins Institute

In the September 21st edition of the Wall Street Journal (the New York section, not available to all readers), an article appeared about Sander Flaum. He is a marketing consultant and adjunct professor at Fordham University. Mr. Flaum stuttered until the age of 30, at which point he enrolled in a speech therapy program at the Hollins Communications Research Institute in Roanoke, Virginia. He claims to have gotten his fluency problem under control, but still needs to practice daily.

Through the Rose Flaum Foundation, he is offering grants of up to $4000 to those in need who wish to enroll in the Hollins program, which is several weeks long. The Foundation is funding the program to the tune of $100,000 per year, so there should be over 25 grants offered each year. No contact information was given in the article.
