DAR taking scholarship applications online only

The Daughters of the American Revolution announced from now on, all students applying for scholarships offered by the DAR Scholarships Committee will submit their applications using an on-line application process.

Emailed or mailed applications will no longer be accepted.

Last year, the DAR Scholarship Committee awarded 83 scholarships totaling more than $280,000.

DAR’s scholarships are awarded and judged without regard to gender, race, color, religion, national origin, or disability.

Applicants must be citizens of the United States.

Applicants must attend or plan to attend an accredited college or university in the U.S.

All are multi-year scholarships, typically renewable up to four years, and must be for consecutive years of attendance.

Awards are based on academic excellence, commitment to the field of study, and/or financial need. There are other restrictions on specific scholarships.

Awards are placed on deposit with the college or university, and any unused portion shall be returned to the DAR.

Students are eligible for one scholarship only from the DAR.

The DAR Scholarship Committee’s direct link to the online scholarship application submission portal is dar.org/national-society/scholarships
