Richard C. Gorecki Scholarships
Polish Falcons of America

Since its inception, the Polish Falcons of America has been committed to the physical, emotional and educational development of young Polish Americans. Through a wide range of fraternal programs, thousands of young Falcon Members have been introduced to and taught the time-tested maxim – A Healthy Spirit In A Healthy Body. In 1962, the organization took another step in fostering a positive environment for children by instituting a scholarship program. Since then, more than 1,200 students have received a scholarship grant from the Polish Falcons.

This scholarship program was introduced by the Polish Falcons in 1999. The Richard C. Gorecki Scholarship Program is named after a longtime member of Polish Falcons Nest 79 in Southgate, Mich. Druh Richard C. Gorecki was an outstanding scholar who graduated with a degree in engineering from the prestigious University of Michigan.

Druh Gorecki passed away on April 14, 1994 and generously bequeathed a portion of his estate to the Polish Falcons for educational purposes. The Gorecki Scholarships are designed to reward those Falcon members who demonstrate the highest academic standards and leadership qualities.

Deadline to apply is March 29, 2013. For additional information about the Gorecki Scholarship Grants, contact National First Vice President Patricia DelBusse by e-mail: or call 1-800-535-2071. You can also download an application on the Polish Falcons of America website:
