Remembrance Scholarship Application for 2021-22 to Open on Nov. 12
The 2021-22 Remembrance Scholarship application will open on Thursday, Nov. 12.
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, student government, campus clubs or other community organizations.
The 35 rising seniors chosen are each awarded a $5,000 Remembrance Scholarship, with recipients representing one of the 35 Syracuse University students lost in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, on Dec. 21, 1988.
Remembrance Scholars will help educate the campus community about extremism 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.”
Who Can Apply?
Any Syracuse University undergraduate student who is in good academic standing and will graduate in either December 2021 or May 2022 is eligible to apply. Students self-nominate for this scholarship, and the award is not tied to financial need. The application may be found on the Center for Fellowship and Scholarship Advising website.
Information sessions will be held via Zoom at the following dates and times:
- Wednesday, Dec. 2, at noon
- Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 2 p.m.
Registration is required to attend the sessions.
At each of these information sessions, current Remembrance Scholars will provide an overview of their experience from the application stage to their planning of and participation in Remembrance activities throughout the year.
