Sacramento Association of Realtors - Scholarship Applications Available NOW

You may recall from a previous blog post, the Sacramento Association of Realtors "Young Professionals Council" raised about $4,400 for the SAR Scholarship Fund last year in June via a vendor fair event. Just as the "Young Professionals Council" did last year, this year we are also doing a vendor fair fundraiser for the SAR Scholarship Fund.

In 2009, SAR awarded approximately $44,000 in scholarships to deserving Sacramento area students. Well...the application period for SAR's 2010 scholarships is NOW!! Completed applications must be received by SAR by 5:00pm on March 31st, 2010.

The scholarships are available to qualifying high school seniors and college students who attend school in and are permanent residents of Sacramento County or the City of West Sacramento. SAR scholarships are awarded for academic achievement (minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5), community service, and extracurricular activities. You must also be related to a past or current Realtor or Affiliate member of the Sacramento Association of Realtors.

Awards in recent years have ranged from $750 to $3,000. Scholarship awards will be announced in May, and they will be presented in June at SAR’s headquarters in Sacramento.
