New KF Tuition Scholarship Program Available for Undergraduate Students

 

New Kosciuszko Foundation Tuition Scholarship Program Available For Undergraduate Students of Polish Origin

Over $75,000 In Grant Funding Secured From The Polish Government For 2014

           The Kosciuszko Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of the application process for a special tuition scholarship program for undergraduate students of Polish origin. A $2,000 scholarship will be offered to 30 promising undergraduate students studying in the USA and pursuing degrees at the intersection of media, communication, political science, social studies, law, and administration. Students seeking careers in media, government, and public affairs are particularly encouraged to apply. Applications will be accepted through July 31, 2014 and scholarship awards will be distributed for the fall semester of the 2014-2015 academic year.

          The key goal of the program is to identify and support highly motivated students of Polish descent who contribute or are likely to engage in community service or any initiatives that benefit or promote a positive image of Polish Americans. “This
groundbreaking program will increase opportunities for Polish-American students enrolled in specific fields at universities throughout the United States.  It is yet another example of the importance that the Polish government places on good relations with Polonia, and the confidence that it has in the Kosciuszko Foundation to implement this and other important projects,” said Dr. John S. Micgiel, president of the Kosciuszko Foundation.

Full-time undergraduate students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents with a minimum GPA of 3.0 are eligible to apply. Scholarships are merit-based and are awarded for academic achievement, leadership qualities, motivation, interest in Polish subjects, and involvement in the Polish American community.

Click HERE to learn more about the program and to apply

The scholarship program was made possible thanks to a $60,000 grant secured by the Kosciuszko Foundation in the national competition “Cooperation with Polish Diaspora and Poles Abroad in 2014” run by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland. An additional grant of over $15,000 was awarded to the foundation for an update of the New KF English-Polish, Polish-English Dictionary, last published over a decade ago. The project, co-sponsored by the KF and the Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union, has begun and will result in a thoroughly updated Dictionary, with online and app-based versions ready in 2015.

 ###

Founded in 1925, the Kosciuszko Foundation promotes closer ties between Poland and the United States through educational, scientific and cultural exchanges. It awards up to $1 million annually in fellowships and grants to graduate students, scholars, scientists, professionals, and artists, and promotes Polish culture in America. The Foundation has awarded scholarships and provided a forum to Poles who have changed history.
