A generous bequest from a member of The National Huguenot Society has made it possible for the Society to award annually a $5000 scholarship to a qualified college or postgraduate student.

This award is limited to $5000 per student, and is not renewable for additional years. The scholarship is not necessarily based upon financial need, and the award monies will be issued directly to the educational institution.

The deadline for submitting the completed application package is February 1st of each year, and should include a complete college transcript of grades including the fall semester ending in the spring of the year of application.

A candidate must meet all of the following criteria in order to be considered for this award:

  • Be a regular member of The National Huguenot Society, having met all requirements for that membership.
  • Be a student at an accredited college or graduate school who has had at least two semesters of history which include, at least in part, a history of religion.
  • Have completed at least two years of college with a 3.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale.

The application form must be completed and submitted together with all the attachments specified in the instructions, and mailed as a package to the individual identified at the bottom of the form. Additional information can be obtained by contacting the Chairman of the Scholarship Committee via e-mail at scholarship@nationalhuguenotsociety.org.
