The Sara Scholarship

The Henry & Sara Sheehan Foundation has announced that it will fund a minimum of 12 college scholarships this year for eligible young women. The Sara Scholarship will be granted annually to female high school seniors who plan to pursue a college degree and who demonstrate academic achievement, excellence of character, financial need and active engagement with the sport of golf. Skill in playing golf is not a criterion.


This award was established as part of the final will of Sara Sheehan, who loved golf and believed that the game taught important life skills and instilled character, especially the qualities of discipline and patience. In Sara’s thinking, not enough young women played or enjoyed golf. The Sara Scholarship, established in her memory, aims to support the life goals of the young women who do.

The Sara Scholarship awards $2000 per year to be applied towards tuition, books, board and other expenses. A minimum of twelve $2000 scholarships will be awarded per year. The grant is eligible for renewal for up to four years, for a total amount of $8000.

To be eligible for consideration in this cycle, applicants must submit the completed Sara Scholarship application postmarked on or before May 4th.

At These Universities, Sleep is a Priority

by Suada Kolovic

We've all been there: Going about our day as if we don't have a care in the world when it dawns on us that (go figure) that term paper on the pros and cons of procrastination in the creative process is due tomorrow. Panicked, we consider emailing our professor an excuse about a death in the family but given we killed off Nana (who's actually alive and well back home) last semester during finals [...]
