High School Seniors: Apply Today for the Dietrich Scholarship from USBA



Though the holidays are barely in the rearview mirror, it’s the right time to start thinking about college scholarships. For those with a high school senior in the family who is planning to attend college, consider having them submit an application for the William A. Dietrich Memorial Scholarship from USBA Services, Inc.* The scholarship provides a $2,000 non-renewable grant that recipients can put toward tuition, room and board, or other college-related expenses.

This scholarship is an important part of USBA heritage. We’ve been awarding it to deserving students for more than 30 years now. Perhaps your student could be next. 

Winners of the 2021 scholarship were Olivia Lapthorn of Pipestone, MN, and Delaney Moser of Mokane, MO. 

The scholarship honors former USBA Executive Director and President, the late Major General William A. Dietrich, USAF (Ret.). It’s awarded annually to at least one graduating high school senior who is a child or grandchild of a USBA Member. Recipients are selected on the basis of academic achievement, leadership accomplishments and participation in community activities.

Applications must be submitted by March 31

If you know a student who is eligible to apply, please encourage them to download and complete the scholarship application. Be sure to let them know that all applications must be received at USBA no later than March 31, 2022.
