In completing the SAR scholarship application, you are consenting to SAR obtaining a report of your credit record and using the information from that report in determining whether to grant a scholarship.

Scholarships offered by SAR are moral scholarships and if you are granted a scholarship by SAR then you will have a future moral obligation to support the SAR Scholarship Fund to the best of your ability. If financial circumstances allow, you will repay the amount of any scholarship received.

No applications will be reviewed by the Committee prior to the submission of both forms and all supporting documentation.

The deadline for submission of complete applications is April 24, 2020.

New applicants to SAR High School who submit completed applications by January 17, 2020*, will be informed of scholarship decisions in February when admission decisions are mailed.

*These applications will be reviewed without the submission of a 2019 tax return. However, any scholarship decision will be subject to change pending the review of the 2019 tax return. Returns must be submitted by April 24, 2020 so that scholarship decisions can be finalized.
