Paul and Lynn Hohenberger

The Paul and Lynn Hohenberger Scholarship was established by Paul ('87) and Lynn Hohenberger to support Political Science or Legal Studies majors with connections to Holyoke, MA. The recipient must demonstrate financial need and be eligible for university financial aid. Preference is given to students who reside in or were born in Holyoke, but students who have interned or volunteered in the city, currently work there, or have demonstrated an interest in the city in some other way are encouraged to apply and explain their connection to the city in their essay. 

Paul J. Hohenberger was born and raised in Holyoke, Massachusetts. He attended local public schools and is a graduate of Holyoke High School. He currently resides in Boston, MA with his wife Lynn, and their daughter Alissa.

He received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a second major in History from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 1987.

Mr. Hohenberger strongly believes that the pursuit of a Liberal Arts education allows students to gain a broad base of knowledge and skills, and that it provides a wonderful foundation for a wide range of career opportunities. Mr. Hohenberger still cares about his old hometown of Holyoke and wants to financially support a "Holyoke kid" so he or she may pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science.
