AKDHA Scholarship Project

It is a program that provides funds for children of members of the Andreas Killian Descendants Historical Association (AKDHA) who are planning to attend:
  • Vocational/technical schools (college level)
  • Junior colleges
  • Colleges or Universities

How the Scholarship

The program is available to all children whose parent/guardians are participating in the AKDHA excluding the Executive Committee/ Board of Directors. The fund is a one-time award paid directly to the student. The Scholarship is not based on the applicant's financial need.

Amount of the Scholarship Fund

There will be two scholarships awarded annually from $500.00 to $1,000.00 annually.

Who is Eligible

The term, children? means natural, adopted, or stepchildren of fully dependent wards of a member of the AKDHA. Eligibility for the scholarship is to all first, second, third, and fourth year attendees of vocational/technical schools, junior colleges, and colleges and universities. High school seniors who have been accepted to an institution of higher learning as previously mentioned are eligible. To qualify for the award, the student must have taken the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT), (but not for vocational/technical).

How Winners are Selected

The winners and alternates will be selected by the Scholarship Committee, which is comprised of the AKDHA President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Program Director. The selection will be based on a competitive nature from the school records, ACT/SAT scores, personal essay and outside activities and interests. The applicants must all realize that the final selection as made by the Scholarship Committee is final.
Note: The Executive Committee reserves the right to change or discontinue the scholarship without notice and notification to the AKDHA membership will occur in the next newsletter or other communication. However, once a scholarship has been awarded, the award will be maintained for the individual in the current school year of receipt. If, for any reason, an individual is found in contempt of the rules of this scholarship, the award will be presented to the next alternate.
