Scholarship opportunity for 2022 Boys State and Girls State attendees  


High school juniors who will attend an American Legion Boys State or Auxiliary Girls State program this summer may be eligible for a higher education scholarship.

The Samsung American Legion Scholarship is available for high school juniors who participate in the current session of American Legion Boys State or Auxiliary Girls State and are direct descendants (or legally adopted children) of wartime veterans eligible for American Legion membership.

The Samsung scholarship awards up to $10,000 for undergraduate studies (e.g., room and board, tuition and books). Each applicant is selected according to his or her involvement in school and community activities, academic record and financial need.

The 2022 Samsung American Legion Scholarship application will be available Feb. 11. All applications must be submitted using the online application system.

Please note that the scholarship is restricted to high school juniors participating in the current session of Boys or Girls State; youth who participated in either program the previous year cannot apply or reapply for the scholarship.
