Awards Tea

Sadly, our 2020 celebration is cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak and the Wisconsin shutdown; however, the 2020 scholarships were awarded – please check the scholarship winners page to view our recipients. Please join as next year when we celebrate our scholarship program with our annual Awards Tea!

Each year, Polanki awards twelve scholarships to university students who are either of Polish descent or concentrating on Polish studies. The tea culminates months of preparation, including extensive fundraising, scholarship program publicity, application solicitation, and application review.

The entire Polanki organization takes part in some way in awarding these scholarships, so the Awards Tea is truly a celebration of both our group and of our effort in working towards our philanthropy goals. Therefore, we welcome all Polanki members and the general public to attend this free event.

The program features:

  • Classical music performance
  • Presentation of the scholarships
  • European-style tea with homemade Polish pastries and beverages
