Remembrance Scholarship Application Deadline Is Jan. 24
The deadline to apply to be a 2020-21 Remembrance Scholar is approaching. Friday, Jan. 24, is the last day to submit your application.
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 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 the University’s 35 students, are remembered and honored. The motto of the Remembrance Scholars is “Look Back and Act Forward.”
Any Syracuse University undergraduate student who is in good academic standing and will graduate in either December 2020 or May 2021 is eligible to apply. Students self-nominate for this scholarship. This award is not tied to financial need. The application may be found on the Center for Fellowship and Scholarship Advising website.
