Enclosed please find an application packet for the Margaret Sanders Foundation International Schools Scholarship. Please pass this on to your guidance counselor so that he/she can inform your seniors of this opportunity.
Each EARCOS school is invited to submit ONE application to the EARCOS office for this scholarship. The EARCOS office will, in turn, select one application to submit to the Foundation for United Way. If any of your students are interested, the application must be received in the EARCOS office by November 14, 2016, so that EARCOS can submit its selection to the Foundation by the deadline of January 13, 2017.
We hope that some of your students will be interested in applying. The winners receive good coverage in several international publications. This year, Jeane Khang, the 2016/17 school year scholarship recipient from Singapore American School was one of the four worldwide winners of the Margaret Sanders Scholarship—it would be wonderful if another student from the EARCOS region would be selected this year.
One thing I’ve learned is that a handsome portfolio and a well-written essay are of utmost importance.
Please let us know if you have any questions.

Born in 1910, Margaret Sanders often found herself working in a man's world where she held such jobs as advertising designer, writer, air traffic controller, photographer and international yearbook representative. Her career with Walsworth Publishing Company began in 1961 and during the subsequent four decades, she traveled the world assisting schools with the publication of their yearbooks. This exciting career afforded her the opportunity to develop a close identification with overseas "American/International" schools and their diverse and interesting populations.
While Margaret passed on in June, 2009, she left a legacy of giving through her scholarship fund in perpetuity.
