Margaret Sanders Foundation International Schools Scholarships
|Margaret Sanders with NESA's David Chojnacki
Margaret Sanders, who passed away in June 2009, was a longtime friend of American/international education through her association with Walsworth Publishing Company. She established a scholarship fund, the Margaret Sanders Foundation, to help graduates of our schools attend college. Several scholarships are awarded each spring to graduating seniors at international schools who demonstrate persistence, motivation, resourcefulness, and acceptance of other cultures and points of view. Factors considered in the selection process include academic achievement, financial needs, and higher education and vocational aspirations. Manifestation of desire to contribute to, or directly address, community and societal needs and problems will be considered in the selection process. The number and amount of awards are determined year-to-year.
Each regional association (ie, NESA, AISA, EARCOS, ECIS, etc) chooses one candidate for consideration by the Margaret Sanders Foundation. Each NESA regular member school may nominate one candidate, whose application must reach NESA by December 1.
Graduating seniors from NESA 'regular member' schools are eligible to apply. NOTE: Application materials (ie. portfolios, essays, etc.) will not be returned. Download the 2013 application form.
