Milan Getting Scholarship
Each year Sokol USA is proud to award the Milan Getting Scholarship to a limited number of qualified Sokol USA members who are furthering their education in a two or four-year college or university. Funding is provided by contributions from members, lodges, regions (formerly districts) and fundraisers. The program is administered by the Milan Getting Scholarship Committee, which consists of four District Board members. Applications for the scholarship are due by April 1 of each year and the scholarship recipients are announced in late spring. In the fall of 2018, the Board of Directors voted to increase the amount of the first-year scholarship to $1,000. Recipients are eligible to renew their scholarship in the amount of $500 for three more years, providing they maintain their membership in GBU/Sokol USA and a minimum grade point average of 2.5.
This scholarship is only awarded to qualified Sokol USA Members. The Application for the Milan Getting Scholarship is below.
In 1962 GBU established a scholarship to encourage and assist GBU members furthering their post-secondary education. Funding is provided by tax-deductible contributions by GBU members, districts and other sources. The program is administered by the GBU Foundation. GBU/Sokol USA members are also eligible for the college scholarship and grants offered by GBU Financial, the parent company of Sokol USA District 4000.
