Remembrance Scholarship 2022-23 Application Cycle Is Now Open
All Syracuse University students are invited to learn more about the Remembrance Scholarship. Students planning to graduate in December 2022 or May 2023 are invited to apply now for the 2022-23 cohort.
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, 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 our 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 2022 or May 2023 is eligible to apply. Students self-nominate for this scholarship. This award is not tied to financial need.
Information sessions will be held on the following dates and times:
- Thursday, Nov. 18, at noon via Zoom
- Friday, Dec. 3, 2 to 3 p.m. in the Peter Graham Scholarly Commons, 114 Bird Library
