Scholarship Opportunity for Students of Polish Descent


 The Polish Room Committee Scholarship ($3,000 top award) welcomes applications from Luzerne County residents. To be considered, applicants must write a brief essay.  Polish pride is more than traditions, music, and tasty food. Our History reflects the accomplishments of many great Polish people.  Choose a person of Polish descent from the list of Marie Curie, Frederic Chopin, Pope Saint John Paul II, and Andrzej Tadeusz Kosciuszko.  Explain how this person deepened your appreciation of what it means to be Polish American, and what influence it has or will have on your life.

Preference will be given to applicants demonstrating financial need. This letter must be submitted, along with the applicant’s name, WIN, and contact information to Allison Naumann, Alumni House.

Applications can be emailed to with the subject line “Polish Heritage Scholarships.”


Deadline for applications is October 13 at 4:30 p.m.
