This $1,000 scholarship is awarded to an Active Sister studying for either undergraduate or graduate degrees and can be used toward tuition and books. The 2015 National Scholarship essay topic was “Creating unity within the Organization.” The National Scholarship Committee met on July 15, 2015 where all essays were reviewed and when the committee collectively decided on a recipient.
