The Anna Donson Memorial Scholarship will be offered once again in 2021 to an outstanding Rusyn student or any student enrolled in a Carpatho-Rusyn School, or who is a member of a Carpatho-Rusyn family, organization, society, or club that advances the Carpatho-Rusyn culture.

The aim of the scholarship is to assist students who themselves are members of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society, or who would advance the Carpatho-Rusyn culture, language, or tenets of the Carpatho-Rusyn Society. The purpose of this $1000.00 scholarship is to recognize and provide financial assistance to an outstanding student enrolled in a higher education program (2 or 4-year duration or graduate program) or any accredited institution that offers certified academic, professional, technical, or vocational training.

The scholarship wishes to encourage and highlight the excellent contributions that our Rusyn people are making to their communities and beyond. The scholarship also intends to accelerate the advancement of our young Carpatho Rusyn population, expanding the development of our C-R citizens, within their community and state through higher education, advanced learning, and professional academic or vocational work.
