Applications for the 2019 Amelia Island Chapter DAR Scholarships are now available from the guidance counselors at each Nassau County High School. Awards are presented to one senior from each of the four Nassau County high schools regardless of race, religion, or gender. Applicants must be U.S. citizens and seniors in high school who have been accepted by a collage. Home school students are encouraged to apply through their nearest high school. More information is available from the senior guidance counselors at each school.
Deadline for all applications is March 4, 2019. Winners will be notified by telephone, and will be awarded a check for $1,000.00 at the chapter’s awards ceremony in April. They will also be acknowledged at their school’s honors program.
