Robert Emmet Society
The Robert Emmet Society is based in Petoskey, Michigan, the county seat of Emmet County. Its mission is to create awareness of Irish Patriot Robert Emmet (1778 – 1803), the namesake of Emmet County, which is located in northwestern Michigan, on the shores of Lake Michigan. The Society’s major event annually is the awarding of a scholarship to a student at North Central Michigan College for one semester of study at Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology.
Irish Studies Scholarship Each spring, the Robert Emmet Society awards a scholarship to an outstanding North Central Michigan College student for a fall semester of study in Galway, Ireland.
