Remembrance Scholarship 2023-2024 Application Cycle is Now Open!

All Syracuse University students are invited to learn more about the Remembrance Scholarship. Students planning to graduate in December 2023 or May 2024 are invited to apply now for the 2023-24 cohort.

The Remembrance Scholarship is one of the highest honors a Syracuse University student can receive. Those selected are chosen on the basis of scholarship, leadership and service to the community, including service to the military, ROTC, first responder, student government, campus clubs or other community organizations.

The 35 rising seniors chosen are each awarded a $5,000 Remembrance Scholarship, and are charged with helping to educate the campus community about the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988.

Scholars are expected to undertake meaningful service and to promote initiatives to combat hatred an extremism. Through education, all 270 lost in the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 are remembered and honored. The motto of the Remembrance Scholars is “Look Back and Act Forward.”

Who Can Apply?

Any Syracuse University undergraduate student who is in good academic standing and will graduate in either December 2023 or May 2024 is eligible to apply. Students self-nominate for this scholarship. This award is not tied to financial need.
