Audrey Butvay Gruss Science Award, 1992


The Audrey Butvay Gruss Science Award is awarded annually, with preference for a female student, to an undergraduate who has demonstrated outstanding academic work in any of the sciences and who is a scholarship recipient. This award was established in 1992 by Audrey Butvay Gruss, an alumna of Jackson College.

Audrey Butvay Gruss, J1964, graduated with honors with a B.S. in biology, and is a Fellow of Tufts University. She was a marketing and advertising executive for Elizabeth Arden, and was co-owner and president of Terme di Saturnia, an international skin-care company. She is now president of the New York-based Audrey and Martin Gruss Foundation, which focuses on supporting arts and education. She is a board member of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, where the foundation underwrote numerous summer concerts and festivals. She is also a board member of the Public Theatre/N.Y. Shakespeare Festival, and the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, and involved with the Metropolitan Museum, the New York Public Library, and the New York Botanical Garden. These varied engagements in New York are mirrored by a wide spectrum of support given by her and the foundation in the Palm Beach area to health care, the community, and the arts. She received the town of Palm Beach's Charitable Achievement Award in 1999. Internationally, she is engaged in the U.S.-Baltic Foundation, whose Gruss Fellow Program provides U.S. training in "grass-roots" democracy of municipal employees in the Baltics.
