The SSAGA Board of Directors established, and the Executive Board and Membership sanctioned, our Scholarship Awards Program in 2000. We designed the program to provide financial assistance with tuition, fees, or expenses for college-bound students within the six SSAGA affiliate club districts.
Scholarship Application Award Procedures and Forms
All applicants are required to have an SSAGA Member as a Sponsor. An applicant cannot apply without the active support of an SSAGA Member. The SSAGA Member will remain in contact with the Scholarship Applicant, providing support and advice throughout the academic school year. The Scholarship Committee will use the SSAGA Sponsor to maintain ongoing communication with the scholarship recipient. (Continuous contact will include confirmation of attendance at an educational. institution, presentation of the award, pictures, correspondence, and other administrative services.)
Sponsors must submit all scholarship applications to the Scholarship Committee by May 31. SSAGA only accepts forms during the Open Application Period from March 15 - May 31.
