"Education is the most powerful weapon in which you can use to change the world."

Welcome to the Yolan J. DePhillips Memorial Scholarship website. This memorial was formed in the Spring of 2011 by JFK IAT, Terminal 4, and Our Lady of the Skies Chapel at JFK International Airport to commemorate the life of Yolan J. DePhillips and to continue her legacy of excellence and generosity posthumously. The funds of the scholarship are funded by the JFK IAT Terminal 4 and Our Lady of the Skies Chapel. The scholarship is awarded annually to selected children of JFK employees and/or JFK employees themselves and is open to any field of study at any college-level educational institution in the United States. We invite you to explore this website to learn more about this scholarship and its namesake, Yolan J. DePhillips.

This year we will award two individuals $4,000 each

The deadline for all completed material is September 20, 2023. The winners will be announced at the end of September and the main ceremony will take place during Our Lady of the Skies Annual Luncheon at the Crest Hollow Country Club. The date of the event will be announced later.
