a little bit of money can go a long way

Students sometimes come to us asking for money to make up the difference between tuition and their savings.  Sometimes it’s as low as a few hundred dollars so wouldn’t it be nice to know you have a scholarship to fill the gap?

The American Foundation of Savoy Orders has called for applications for the 2014-2015 Savoy Orders Pigott Scholarships.  The scholarships are available for North American residents.  Three $2500 scholarships to full time undergraduate or graduate students majoring in the Humanities and Fine Arts or International Studies will be offered based on scholastic achievement and financial need.

For students applying for the International Studies Scholarship, please note that students will be expected to periodically attend Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) briefings at sessions relating to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations with which the Savoy Foundation is registered as a NGO. Scholarship recipients will be required to write brief summaries of each meeting they attend. A Foundation representative will supervise and guide the student’s activities at the United Nations.  Enrollment in a college or university within reasonable proximity of the United Nations is required.

Please click here for the scholarship guidelines and the application.  Application along with required materials must be completed and received on or before May 15, 2014 in order to be considered.  Incomplete applications will not be considered.

The American Foundation of Savoy Orders, Incorporated will notify 2014-2015 Savoy Orders Pigott Scholarship recipients by July 30, 2014.
