Once again this year, the National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) awards multiple scholarships to students showing dedication to the pursuit of higher education in diverse areas of study including history, economics, law, political science, medicine, nursing, occupational and physical therapy, elementary and secondary education, chemistry, math, science and English.

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

Applicants must be citizens of the United States.

Applicants must attend or plan to attend an accredited college or university in the United States.

All multiyear scholarships, typically renewable up to four years, must be for consecutive years of attendance.

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

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

Applicants are only eligible to receive one scholarship from the DAR.

All students applying for scholarships will now submit their applications using the online application portal. Emailed or mailed applications will no longer be accepted, unless applying for the Margaret Howard Hamilton Scholarship.

Home-schooled students must include transcripts for Grade 9 nine through their current year.
