COVID-19 UPDATE on Memorial, Insurance Trust and Nursing scholarships

By Art Tobkin,
chairman of the Americanism Committee for the Department of Minnesota

Legionnaires,

The meeting planned for noon on April 17 at Waite Park Post 428 to review the scholarship applications is postponed indefinitely. A date, time and location probably will be in the latter part of June 2020.

The Department of Minnesota scholarships (Memorial and Insurance Trust) had an application deadline of April 1. The application deadline will be extended to June 1.  The scholarship requirement of a signature from the local Legion Post, which are for the most part closed, will be waived.

The aforementioned changes apply to the Department of Minnesota scholarships (Memorial and Insurance Trust). The newly created Nurse’s Scholarship will remain unchanged.

Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated. Thanks.
