The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) announces beginning in November, 2021, all students applying for scholarships offered by the DAR Scholarships Committee will submit their applications using an on-line application process. Emailed or mailed applications will no longer be accepted.
Last year, the DAR Scholarship Committee awarded 83 scholarships totaling more than $280,000.
DAR’s scholarships are awarded and judged without regard to gender, race, color, religion, national origin, or disability.
Applicants must be citizens of the United States (U.S.).
Applicants must attend or plan to attend an accredited college or university in the U.S.
All multi-year scholarships, typically renewable up to four years, must be for consecutive years of attendance.
Awards are based on academic excellence, commitment to the field of study, and/or financial need, or other restrictions on specific scholarships.
Awards are placed on deposit with the college or university and any unused portion shall be returned to the NSDAR. • Students are eligible for one scholarship only from NSDAR.

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to preserve the memory and spirit of those who contributed to securing American independence. For more than 125 years, the DAR has strived to bring awareness to the honorable sacrifices and enduring legacy of all patriots who fought for America’s freedom. Through the DAR Genealogical Research System (www.dar.org/GRS), the public can access a free database of information amassed by the DAR about these patriots. DAR is a nonprofit, nonpolitical women’s service organization with more than 185,000 members in approximately 3,000 chapters worldwide. Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible for membership. DAR members passionately carry out the timeless mission of promoting historic preservation, education, and patriotism. To learn more about the work of today’s DAR, visit www.dar.org.
