Help support the
Detroit St. Patrick’s Parade!


For the first time in 2020,  the United Irish Societies (UIS) will be awarding scholarships to the sons and daughters of parents who are active in the Irish community. We are excited to see this program grow as it represents an important part of the mission of the UIS.

Our Mission Statement aims “to maintain the American ideals of liberty, uphold the principles on which America was founded and to help promote Irish heritage and culture for people, clubs, societies and other groups of Irish ancestry.”  This Scholarship, reserved for young men and women of Irish ancestry, aids in our mission.  To be considered as a recipient you must be a High School Senior or completed High School and have performed or made a commitment to community service in the Metro Detroit Irish community by the time the scholarship is awarded in June of the current year. The focus of this award is on service to community.

Deadline is May 1, 2020.  Scholarships will be presented to the winners in June 2020 at the Motor City Irish Festival.
