The P.E.O. Scholar Award Board of Trustees is excited to announce an increase in the amount of the Award from $20,000 to $25,000.

Thank you to all our sisters’ generous donations which makes this increase possible.

• Has a bachelor’s degree
• Is within two years of her graduation date, has at least one full academic year of work remaining to complete her doctoral-level degree as of August 1, 2025, and has a graduation date between April 2026 to August 2027.

• Is enrolled at an accredited U.S. or Canadian college or university.
• Must be enrolled full-time during the year of the award

We are able to give this award increase to $25,000 because the generosity of all of you. We are especially grateful to our Laureate Chapters who contribute a lump sum contribution of $500 or more through the normal donation process. Because Laureate means “worthy of the greatest honor or distinction” it is a fitting descriptor for our participating chapters.

Thank you again!
