SBIC Scholarship Fund

One of the primary annual goals of the Sandy Burr Inner Club (SBIC) is to raise enough money to enable the awarding of $1,000 scholarships to deserving students. At a minimum, the SBIC awards one scholarship per year. For those years when fund raising is particularly successful, the SBIC will present multiple awards.

 PURPOSE:  The purpose of the Sandy Burr Inner Club Scholarship Fund is to award to deserving students whom intend to pursue their education in a recognized and accredited College/University/Vocational or Technical School.  The nominal amounts will be awarded to help defray the cost of their education.

Merit Scholarship(s) in the amount of $1,000.00 will be awarded at the annual Sandy Burr Inner Club Awards Dinner, and will be paid directly to the student (not the college.)

ELIGIBILITY: Applicant can be an active member or any blood relative of a SBIC member in good standing.  If applicant is under the age of 18, application must also be signed by parent or guardian.

The applicant can be an incoming freshman, undergraduate or graduate student.

Scholarships will be awarded to properly qualified students on merit only, regardless of sex, race, creed or national origin.

The awards will be made by the Scholarship Committee after review of all applicants.  The Scholarship Committee will review the applications, which defines all details of the applicants scholastic ability, character, activities, and need.  The applications that are reviewed by the Scholarship Committee will not contain the applicant’s family name, but will be identified with an applicant’s identification number, in order to provide anonymity.
