Simply Slavic Accepting YSU Scholarship Applications

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Simply Slavic is seeking applicants for its $500 academic scholarship at Youngstown State University.

“Our recipients are the most promising of our heritage’s next generation so we want to help them and get them excited about their background,” said Dave Slanina, Simply Slavic treasurer.

Undergraduate YSU students who have completed their freshman year are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be of at least 25% Slavic heritage, and are required to submit a 500 word essay on how being Slavic affects their life.

A panel of the Simply Slavic organizing committee will select the winners after reviewing the essays, overall academic achievement, faculty recommendations and involvement in their culture.

The deadline for applications is June 16. The winners will be announced at the organizational committee’s appreciation dinner in July.

Applications are available at SimplySlavic.org.
