Margaret Sanders Scholarship

This prestigious annual scholarship is available to graduating students studying at ECIS member schools. To be eligible, students must be applying to 501 (c)(3), US chartered, degree-granting institution and be currently studying at an ECIS premium member school. Awards are $4,000 each.

For over 65 years, 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 afforded her the opportunity to develop a close identification with overseas “American/International” schools and their diverse and interesting populations.

Margaret passed away in June 2009. Her legacy continues via the scholarship foundation through the United Way Foundation of Sarasota County to serve the international schools in perpetuity.
