Call For Scholarships

The American Council for Polish Culture (ACPC) is pleased to announce it is seeking applicants for the Louis & Nellie Skalny Scholarships for Polish Studies. The two $4,000 scholarships are intended for students pursuing Polish studies (major may be in other fields) at U.S. universities. Third- and fourth-year college students, as well as post-graduates, are encouraged to apply. Polish descent is not mandatory. Scholarships are awarded for the fall term. Complete application requirements are available online at

For the past 15 years, the Rochester, N.Y.-based Louis and Nellie Skalny Foundation has donated to create a fund for this purpose and selected the American Council for Polish Culture as the scholarship administrator.

“We’re delighted to again administer the scholarship program and urge all students pursuing Polish studies to apply,” said Debbie Majka, ACPC Skalny Scholarship Committee Chair. “ACPC recognizes the importance of encouraging individuals to assume leadership roles in the Polish American community. We believe that the Skalny Scholarship awards provide incentives in this direction.”

The deadline for scholarship application is May 15, 2014.
