  • Scholarship Description
  • An International GRHS Essay Contest, sponsored by the Germans from Russia Heritage Society, headquartered in Bismarck, North Dakota, will be held to encourage students from around the world to learn about the history and culture of the German-Russians, people who emigrated from Germany into Russia during the 18th and 19th centuries. Today, in the USA, Canada, and other countries in the Western Hemisphere, these people have become known as Germans from Russia. Contest judging will commence after the close of the Contest on 1 March with the winners being announced after the judging has been completed. Winning contestants will be invited to receive their awards at a luncheon held in their honor during the GRHS Convention on 7-10 September at Rapid City, SD.

    The GRHS Essay Contest is open to all students attending public, private, parochial or home schools and to students attending accredited universities as full-time undergraduate students. The subject of the paper must be directly related to German-Russian history heritage or culture and be the contestant's original work. A contestant does not need to be ethnic German-Russian to enter the contest. The categories are: middle school, high school, high school senior, and university/college undergraduate. Award amounts vary by category. Six total scholarships will be awarded.

    The essay categories can be found on the application.
