The Polanie Legacy Scholarship, established in 2014 through a generous bequest from the Polanie Organization, supports studies at a secondary or post-secondary institution, including colleges, universities, technical schools, and vocational schools. All application materials must be submitted by July 31. Applicants must be of Polish descent. Submit a short biographical statement, including a brief description of your Polish heritage/descent and your academic achievement (GPA) documentation. Preferential consideration will be given to Minnesota and Wisconsin residents and PACIM members.
The application must include a program/course description, including information about your tuition and required course materials, and submit two letters of recommendation and an essay describing your personal goals. Successful applicants are expected to volunteer at one PACIM event. Each scholarship will be awarded in the amount of up to $2,000. Multiple scholarships may be awarded each year. If no applicants meet the criteria, no scholarship will be awarded. Applicants may apply in successive years for consideration.
