Samsung Scholarship

ALJBS will once again be accepting and sending nominations for the Samsung Scholarship in 2016. All applications for the scholarship and required paperwork should be with the delegates upon arrival to Rider's Campus on Day 1 of the program. Each delegate's Senior City Counselor will be collecting applications by Monday morning. The selection of the scholarship nominees are based on the national standard used: academic record; involvement in school activities; involvement in community activities; community service; financial need and additional bonus points in the selection process will be awarded to descendants of U.S. veterans of the Korean War.

For more information on the Samsung Scholarship, click here to be directed to The American Legion website. The basic principle is that the ALJBS delegate be a direct descendant of a wartime veteran who served on active duty during at least one of the periods of war officially designated as eligibility dates for American Legion membership (as found on the active Samsung Application below).
