The 2021-22 Remembrance Scholarship application will open on Thursday, Nov. 12.
The Remembrance Scholarship is one of the highest honors a Syracuse University student can receive. Those selected are chosen on the basis of scholarship, leadership and service to the community, including service to the military, ROTC, first responder, student government, campus clubs or other community organizations.
The 35 rising seniors chosen are each awarded a $5,000 Remembrance Scholarship, with recipients representing one of the 35 Syracuse University students lost in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, on Dec. 21, 1988.
Remembrance Scholars will help educate the campus community about extremism by relating Syracuse University’s Pan Am Flight 103 experience to current events. Through education, all 270 lost in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103, especially the University’s 35 students, are remembered and honored. The motto of the Remembrance Scholars is “Look Back and Act Forward.”
