The Laurel American Legion Post 19 is accepting applications for two $2,000 scholarships this year. Applicants must be a high school senior and provide letter of acceptance to an accredited institution. In making the selection for award of a scholarship consideration will be given to the applicant’s scholastic and academic records, SAT/ACT scores, character, work record, extra-curricular activities, and community service.  

One of the two scholarships is reserved for seniors who are direct descendants of a member of the American Legion Post 19. The second scholarship is for any senior who lives in the 19956 zip code regardless of what school they attend. 

Scholarship applications are available at Laurel High School, Delmar High School, and Sussex Tech.  If you would like to receive an application by email reply to 19****@co*****.net or call Richard Elliott at 302-875-9948. Deadline for applications is May 1, 2023.
