Polish-American Community of Toledo (PACT) and Toledo Poznan Alliance (TPA)
Annual Scholarship Competition ends May 31, 2019
OHIO – The Polish-American Community of Toledo (PACT) and the Toledo Poznan Alliance (TPA) have announced that their Annual Scholarship Competition to award $4,000 to area Polish-American students is currently underway.
Over the past seven years over $24,000 in scholarship money has been awarded to students of Polish-American heritage in the Toledo area.
The competition is divided into two categories — High School and College. Applicants must fill out an application form and submit an essay. The high school category is for students in grades 8 – 12. Their essay topic is “What is the meaning of your Polish American heritage?” The college category is for undergraduate students and the topic of their essay is “What individual or event associated with Polish culture has impacted you, your community, or country the most, and why?”
If a public high school student is awarded a scholarship, funds will be placed in escrow until the student attends college.
Former scholarship winners are not eligible to receive another scholarship in the same category. For instance, a high school winner cannot receive another scholarship competing in the high school category. However, the student could re-apply and could win while attending college.
Applicants are required to complete a Scholarship Application Form and submit it along with their essay by May 31, 2019 to: Polish-American Community of Toledo (PACT), P.O. Box 1033, Sylvania, OH 43560
