Remembrance Scholar Applications Now Open
Are you a rising senior? If so, you are invited to learn more about the Remembrance Scholars Program.
The Remembrance Scholarship is one of the highest honors a Syracuse University student can receive. Those selected are chosen on the basis of scholarship, leadership and service to the community, including service to the military, ROTC, first responder or other community organizations.
The 35 rising seniors chosen are each awarded a $5,000 Remembrance Scholarship, with recipients each representing one of the 35 Syracuse University students lost in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988.
Those selected will help educate the SU campus community about terrorism by relating Syracuse University’s Pan Am Flight 103 experience to current events. Through education, all 270 lost in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, especially our 35 students, are remembered and honored. The motto of the Remembrance Scholars is “Look Back and Act Forward.”
