Each year the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) awards multiple scholarships to students showing dedication to the pursuit of higher education in diverse areas of study including history, economics, law, political science, medicine, nursing, occupational and physical therapy, elementary and secondary education, chemistry, math, science and English.
To be eligible for the scholarship, you must write an essay of 450 to 500 words on a topic in Revolutionary War history. Other Scholarships The DAR, especially, offers a host of scholarships for students in a broad range of academic pursuits, including history, economics, nursing, and medicine.In the 1930s, for instance, one leader of the Daughters of the American Revolution defined education precisely as a body of ideas that “shall be transmitted by us to our children.” And in his popular 1949 book And Madly Teach, pundit Mortimer Smith insisted that true education consisted precisely of transmitting the children “the whole heritage of man’s progress through history.”.Each year the Daughters of the American Revolution hold an essay contest for students with a specified topic relating to history or American life. This year, participants were asked to submit essays regarding World War I. We are proud to announce the winners are Kyle Wilburn and Jenna Critchfield. With their permission, we are glad to print their winning essays here in the Ledger Dispatch.
