The Scholarship Fund
The Irish Cultural Society
of San Antonio Texas
Date : circa February 1999
Our thanks to those who responded to our original quest to set guidelines to promote Irish
heritage, culture, and ultimately an interest in our society. They got it started and we
are thankful for their work.
Our primary focus is to promote awareness and appreciation for the contributions of the
Irish to the United States, to Texas, and to San Antonio. For this reason the Irish Cultural
Society (ICS) scholarship will target students interested in Irish culture and heritage.
- These guidelines are not rules; they are guides. These guidelines may be revised
at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee Chairperson.
Our financial limits permit a one-time award of $1000.00 to each winner.
The scholarship is now considered an annual event.
The purpose of the scholarship is to further education of high school level seniors
who have an intent to attend college, and promote interest in Irish History.
The Scholarship Committee is established in the constitution.
The Chairperson is elected to manage the operation of the scholarship fund as
provided in the Irish Cultural Society's bylaws.
Application Information will be made available to anyone upon request.

The actual scholarship check will be presented at our May or June meeting.
The original guidelines were assembled after many hours of deliberation by:
Thomas and Elaine Hyland
Shirley and Peter Hynes
