The Scholarship is given in honor of Nick MacElree who was a member of the class of 1971 at Gettysburg College. Nick grew up in Chester Springs, PA and graduated from Owen J. Roberts High School. He was elected president of his class during freshman year at Gettysburg and was a Phi Delt. The Nick MacElree Book Scholarship Fund provides a $1,000 scholarship to subsidize the cost of books for a deserving Gettysburg student in need of additional financial assistance.
Scholarships will be awarded each year on a competitive basis to a deserving student who, in the judgment of the Nick MacElree Scholarship Committee, best demonstrates financial need while exhibiting a broad interest in extracurricular activities in high school and/or at Gettysburg College, particularly in student affairs or in student government.
