2022 Jonas Scholarships
The 2022 Margaret Mary Jonas Memorial Scholarships, sponsored by the Delaware Twp. Democratic Club, will be accepting applications from Delaware and Dingman Twp. students beginning Jan. 31, 2022. The scholarship program is a joint effort between the DTDC and interested individuals and, as always, is nonpartisan.
High school and Middle school application must be postmarked by April 23, 2022. Elementary and Primary applications must be postmarked by May 21, 2022.
There are four competitions for four scholarships. Two scholarships will be awarded for best essay: one to an 8th grade Middle School student, and the other to a graduating High School senior. Also, two scholarships will be awarded for best poster: one to a Primary School 2nd grader, the other to an Elementary School 5th grader. All students must be residents of either Delaware or Dingman Townships and will include all children being homeschooled or are attending charter/private schools. Lynn Sodora, DTDC Scholarship Committee Chair stated "The Margaret Mary Jonas Memorial Scholarship is a wonderful non-partisan opportunity to support and celebrate the accomplishments of the children and youth in our community." No political affiliation is required for application or award.
The scholarships will be awarded at the DTDC Margaret Mary Jonas Memorial Scholarship Dinner, to be held at the Failte! Steakhouse, Rt. 739 Dingmans Ferry, PA, Saturday, June 11, 2022 at 6pm-10pm.
We hope all of our eligible students will participate.
