Dream a Little Dream

Vassar Time-Out grants change lives. Just ask Marin County, California resident Jane Kramer '78. An anonymous alumna established Time-Out grants more than 20 years ago to enable Vassar alums age 40 and over to "make a career change or take time out to pursue a strongly desired endeavor." After receiving the grant for 2003-2004, Kramer took a leave from a research position, returned to her first love—music—and never looked back.
