National Chairman & AOH National Board Liaison for New England
It is that time of year when school bells ring and students and teachers at all levels return to the classroom. The beginning of the new school year, just like New Years Day, opens up doors and new opportunities. And, believe it or not, it is not too early to begin thinking of scholarship opportunities offered by the AOH National Board for next year. Here is some information to consider.
The Irish Way Program is a three week unique cultural and educational program for American High School Students that takes place during the summer in Ireland. The program, which is multifaceted, encompasses three components: Education, the Irish Experience and Irish Touring. For more information on this program please visit the Irish Way website at: www.irishway.org or contact Carol Buck, the Irish Way Coordinator at: cbuck@IACI-usa.org or by phone @ 973 605 1991.
The AOH and LAOH National Boards are proud to offer two $500 Scholarships for the Irish Way Program for the son, daughter, grandson or granddaughter of a member of the AOH and LAOH. For more information please contact me @ email@example.com
The National Board of the Ancient Order of Hibernians has established two (2) annual $1000 Junior Year Abroad Scholarships for the son or daughter or grandchild of an AOH member, who is attending an accredited college or university in the United States, and who has been accepted at an accredited college/university in Ireland. Should not enough applications for the Junior Year Abroad Scholarship be realized, then $500 Scholarships for Semester Abroad Programs will be considered and granted when appropriate. The deadline for the next round of applications for this scholarship is May 1, 2015. For more information and an application please contact me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to serving as the Chairman of our Scholarship Programs, President Moore has appointed me as the AOH National Board Liaison to New England. I look forward to this opportunity to work with my Brother Hibernians here in the New England over the next two years, and I look forward to meeting many of you. Have a great fall season!
