The Scarsdale High School PTA Scholarship Fund for College provides grants to SHS seniors who wish to attend college but need assistance to pay for their first year.
Every year, our graduating seniors celebrate their college acceptances with immense pride. However, that excitement is tempered for some by the reality of financing their college education. The ever-increasing cost of tuition, loss of employment, divorce, serious illness, or the death of a family member can create great financial hardship for some families. Many are under even greater financial strain right now due to the coronavirus pandemic. For seniors who have exhausted all possibilities to help pay for their first year of college, a grant from the SHS PTA Scholarship Fund for College may be the critical factor that allows them to attend school next year.
The SHS PTA Scholarship Fund depends on your generous support. 100% of the money raised goes directly towards assisting with first year tuition payments. The more the Fund raises, the more it is able to ensure that students in need of financial assistance, who have worked so hard for college acceptances, have the opportunity and the means to attend.
Please help us ensure that the door to higher education remains open for all Scarsdale High School seniors by making a contribution to the Scholarship Fund. We expect student need to be significant again this year; please know that your gift, whether large or small, will have a very real impact.
