AOH Scholarship Opportunities
The National Board of the Ancient Order of Hibernians offers several opportunities for the children and grandchildren of their 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 & LAOH 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 approximately 4,000 American high school students since inception in 1975. Each summer 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.
To request an application for this program and scholarship, you may contact the Irish American Cultural Institute directly.

AOH National Board Study Abroad Scholarship:
The National Board of the Ancient Order of Hibernians has established two (2) annual $2,000 Junior Year Abroad Scholarships for the children and grandchildren of an AOH member in good standing, who is attending an accredited college or university in the United States, and who has been accepted at an accredited college/university in Ireland that is recognized by the institution that he/she attends.
Should not enough applications for the Junior Year Abroad Scholarship be realized, then $1000 Scholarships for Semester Abroad Programs or $2,000/1,000 Master’s Degree in Irish Studies Abroad Scholarships will be considered and granted when appropriate. All scholarship applications are judged by an independent and impartial panel. The decisions of this panel are final. An application for this scholarship is available on this web page.
