The deadline for submission of the 2021 NYS AOH Scholarship application is one week away on February 26, 2021. Please send this notice on to your members and ask them to encourage their eligible family members to apply.
Attached is the application for the 2021 scholarship that will be awarded by NYS AOH Board. The award is $3000. All high school seniors who are members, and children or grandchildren of a member belonging to a NYS AOH division are eligible to apply. Applicants should include any AOH family participation (please leave names out) and any other information that they feel makes them deserving of this scholarship. The applicant or his or her sponsoring family member need not have obtained their Major Degree but it is strongly suggested and is factored into the score. All applications will be judged by our scholarship committee, so applicants are urged to complete every section as instructed. Applicants must use a 12-point font when completing the application. No handwritten applications will be accepted.
