  • Scholarship Description
  • The Lee E. Schauer Memorial Scholarship was established in 1989 by family and friends to honor the memory of this fine young man who lost his life in a tragic accident the summer before his senior year of high school.

    It is the wish of the Schauer family that this scholarship be awarded to a college-bound high school senior for whom the award will truly make a difference. For that reason, the award is intended to reach those students who may not qualify for other scholarships - "average" students who are involved in their community and in school activities, who are leaders and display character traits like caring, honesty, respect and responsibility, but whose GPA may eliminate them from consideration for other scholarships.

    The criteria for the scholarship are:
    -College-bound high school senior
    -GPA of 2.5 or higher
    -Continuous membership and active participation in the Sidney-Shelby County YMCA for the 3 years prior to April of the application year
    -Participation in sports and/or fitness activities
    -Commitment to community service as a volunteer, particularly at the Y. Documentation will be required
    -Must demonstrate caring, honesty, respect and responsibility in daily life
    -Must demonstrate leadership qualities

    For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.

Harvard Supporters Back University in Admissions Trial

October 16, 2018

by Susan Dutca

Harvard students and alumni will testify in support of Harvard during the admissions trial this week, defending its "race-conscious admissions policy" against claims that it discriminates against Asian-American applicants.

Adam Mortara, a lawyer representing SFFA, stated that the university scores applicants in four categories: academic achievement, athletic ability, extracurriculars, and personality. While referencing admissions data, he concluded that, despite their higher academic performance, Asian-Americans are admitted at lower rates. [...]
