Supporting Outstanding Learners

SCHOLAR (School Community Helping Outstanding Learners Achieve Recognition) is a group of citizens determined to ease the financial burden of college by granting scholarships to deserving high school graduates living in the Birmingham School District including private and parochial schools.  Most scholarships are awarded to students who attend Michigan colleges or universities.

    All funds received by SCHOLAR are turned over to the Birmingham Student Scholarship Fund Association whose nine trustees include the superintendent of Birmingham Public Schools, one of its board members, a representative of the PTSA Council, the American Association of University Women, and four honorary trustees.

    Students may apply for scholarships their senior year of high school and within two years of high school for aid for the first two years of college. Scholarship applications are available from high school counselors.
