The Press Club of Long Island (PCLI) board has agreed to increase its donation for the Robert W. Greene Summer Institute at Stony Brook from $1,000 to $3,000 this year to help the university increase the number of high school students attending from 18 to 24 with an added emphasis on minority and disadvantaged students.
The additional money will go to create PCLI scholarships for some of the students who would not otherwise be able to afford to attend.
The board also voted to provide $2,000 to Hofstra’s High School Summer Journalism Institute so that the program could continue this year after other funding was discontinued.
The board also will continue to provide $1,000 for the Robert W. Greene/PCLI scholarship given by Hofstra.
