DAR accepting scholarship applications

Published 10:12 am Friday, September 9, 2016

Seniors in the local high schools may apply for two Daughters of the American Revolution scholarships between now and Dec. 1, 2016. The Kentucky Society Daughters of the American Revolution (KSDAR) is sponsoring a $1,000 scholarship to one senior in Kentucky. The applicant does not have to have any connection with DAR in order to be eligible.

To apply for the KSDAR scholarship, local students should see their guidance counselor for information and application form. Any number of students may apply on the local level.

Guidance counselors then should send the application packets to the scholarship chairperson of the St. Asaph Chapter by Dec. 1.

One student will be selected to represent the chapter on the state level. The local winner will be recognized at the February meeting of St. Asaph Chapter.

Students may also apply directly for a National Society Daughters of the American Revolution. Interested students should go to www.members.dar.orff/committees/scholarships.htm for information and application forms.

These competitive scholarships have various dates, so students should be aware of restrictions. National scholarships are sent directly to the NSDAR and not to the counselors or local chair.
