The Ukrainian American Veterans (UAV) held their 69th Annual National Convention in Chicago, Illinois, October 13-15, 2016. Each year the recipients of the UAV Scholarship Awards are announced at the annual convention. The UAV Scholarship Committee selects and awards scholarship money to undergraduate college students. The purpose of the scholarship award is to help students pay for books or school supplies.
Students are required to write an essay (400-500 words) about a current military or popular topic. The topic for 2016 was “What role or strategy should the United States take in its continued efforts in the war on terrorism?”
Eight scholarships were awarded in 2016:
The UAV Scholarship committee thanks all those who have contributed to the Scholarship fund. Next year, there will be a $500 award in memory of Michael Demchuk who started the UAV Scholarship Fund in 1992. Mike passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, August 6, 2015.
Students interested in applying for the UAV Scholarship Award should fill-out an application, send their college transcript, write an essay on this year’s military topic, and email a high-quality digital picture. Applications are available on the UAV website. To be eligible for a UAV scholarship, applicants must be descendants of or related to Ukrainian American Veterans. Students should be full-time undergraduate college students in a degree program or attending an accredited trade school or institution that has a degree program. Students can apply during their senior year in high school; college attendance will be verified before the awards are given in the fall semester. Applications are accepted all year round with the deadline being August 31 of each year. Additionally, undergraduate students may reapply for a scholarship award each year (up to 4 years).
