Each year, SADD National raises funds at our national conference which help support college scholarships for SADD students, each in the amount of $500, to students enrolled or committed to enroll full-time in an accredited 2-year or 4-year college and who demonstrate a commitment to SADD’s mission. The scholarships will be awarded on merit and may be paid either directly to the school or to the applicant. This year, ten scholarships ($500 each) are available.
All applications will be reviewed by an impartial committee comprised of members of the SADD National staff and the SADD National Student Leadership Council. The decision of the committee will be final. Winners will be announced at the SADD National Conference June 28 – July 1, 2015, in Nashville, TN. Applicants need not be present to win. Following the selection process, an email notification will be sent to all applicants.
The applicant must be:
- Entering his or her freshman year of college in fall 2015
- Enrolled or committed to enroll full-time in an accredited college or university (two- or four-year program) during the 2015-2016 academic year
- Dedicated to living the SADD lifestyle (i.e., safe and substance-free under 21)
- A legal resident of the United States
- Participating in a currently-registered SADD chapter (All chapters must register each school year - if your chapter doesn’t have a Certificate of Chapter Recognition dated July 1, 2014 or later, your chapter must register at www.sadd.org/chapterreg.htm prior to submitting a scholarship application. If you have any questions about your chapter’s registration status, please contact Nicole Cheschi at SADD National at 1-877-SADD-INC (723-3462), extension 222 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
