PALCUS Scholarship Program
PALCUS is proud to announce the opening of the PALCUS Scholarship Program and Fund.
The PALCUS Scholarship Program was established with the purpose of providing nationwide, merit-based scholarships in support of Portuguese American students in the pursuit of their higher education goals. Scholarships will be awarded annually to students of Portuguese ancestry who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in their academic careers and who show a commitment to completing an approved plan of study.
The goal of the PALCUS Scholarship Fund is to develop a stream of funding that will provide for one or more students to benefit from substantial scholarship awards each year. Donors to the fund may wish to have a scholarship named for themselves or in honor of or in memory of a special individual. For more information, contact PALCUS.
2012 Application Process is open!
The 2012 PALCUS Scholarship will be funded by the "Rosa-Simão Scholarship Fund" in the amount of $1,000.
