Richard C. Gorecki Scholarship
The Richard C. Gorecki Scholarship Fund is named after a longtime Member of Polish Falcons Nest 79 Southgate, Mich. Druh Gorecki was an outstanding scholar who graduated with a degree in engineering from the prestigious University of Michigan. He passed away on April 14, 1994, and generously bequeathed a portion of his estate to the Polish Falcons for education purposes. In 1998, the Gorecki Scholarship Fund was established to reward those Falcon Members who demonstrate the highest academic standards and leadership qualities.
Each year, an independent panel of judges chooses three worthy PFA Members as the recipients of three $10,000 grants. These grants are awarded to Members who exemplify high academic standards and leadership qualities.
Additional Gorecki Scholarship Grants are given in categories related to either Druh Gorecki and/or the Polish Falcons.
Dr. T.A. Starzynski Scholarship
