The Prince Alexis Scherbatow Scholarship Fund was established after his death in 2002 to celebrate his life and achievements. Prince A.P.Scherbatow had served for thirty-one years as President of the Russian Nobility Association in America. He taught history and political science, earned a PhD from Columbia University, worked for The Tolstoy Foundation, aiding Russian immigrants. Prince Alexis Pavlovich Scherbatow received many honors and tributes from Russian, European and American organizations for his contributions to historical studies. His memoirs are his “Claim to the Past – that past that belongs to Russia because it was for Russia that my forbears worked and wrote”. You can read more about this remarkable man here.
Scholarship recipients are selected based on a combination of academic record, perceived potential to further RNA ideals and goals, character, and financial need. Academic Institutions involved include the prestigious University of California, Berkeley, and other universities and colleges. We are pleased to be able to assist these young people with part of the cost of their education and are most grateful to those whose donations have made this possible.
Additional contributions to the Fund (fully tax deductible) are needed and encouraged. Please mail checks, payable to “The Russian Nobility Association in America” (with Memo: “Scherbatow Scholarship Fund”) to the following address:
