The National Board of the Ancient Order of Hibernians offers several opportunities for the children and grandchildren of its members. Information on two of their Scholarship Programs is noted here. Your National Board strongly encourages you to take advantage of these scholarship awards.
The AOH Irish Way Scholarship:
In 1990 the AOH National Board established an Irish Way Scholarship. A $1,000 Scholarship is awarded annually to the son, grandson, daughter, or granddaughter of a member of the AOH. The Scholarship applications are judged by the Irish American Cultural Institute which is based in New Jersey.
The Irish Way Program is a nationally renowned summer study-abroad program that has educated over 4,000 American high school students since its’ inception in 1975. Each summer approximately American students take part in this unique cultural and educational experience that is supervised by the Irish American Cultural Institute, (IACI)
The Irish Way is truly a lesson in international citizenship. The IACI founded this program on the belief that fostering an appreciation of other cultures is an important part of an individual’s development. Students grow to understand the rich heritage and tradition of Ireland, while also experiencing the country’s distinct culture face-to-face. The Irish Way is a personal discovery and an experience of a lifetime.
The dates for the 2021 Irish Way Program for next summer will be June 28th – July 22nd, 2021. Due to the Covid – 19 pandemic, enrollment will be limited to only 25 students for next summer, If you are interested in applying for the 2021 program, it is important to send in an application as soon as possible.
