The Sarah Fitzgerald Memorial Scholarship for Continuing Education

APPLICATIONS FOR THIS AWARD ARE CLOSED AT THIS TIME.

This scholarship has been established to honor Sarah Fitzgerald’s memory by promoting the continuation of education. One of Sarah’s proudest personal achievements was going back to school (as an adult learner) to receive her degree, which she completed in May of 2020. It is in this spirit of perseverance and ambition that this scholarship has been created. Each year, one member of the Northeast District Alumni Association who has made it a personal goal to go back to classes to continue their education, be it in pursuit of a degree or in pursuit of more knowledge, will be eligible to receive this grant in Sarah’s memory. The scholarship award will be the dollar amount spent on textbooks for their semester, not to exceed $500. 

Eligibility requirements:

  • Applicant must be a member of NEDAA
  • Applicant must be currently enrolled or show proof of enrollment in a course at a college or trade school by the start of the next academic year.
