Awards and Scholarships  

Each year, SAEF honors former students, alumni, teachers, advisors, and associated individual who have achieved excellence in their career fields such as arts, athletics law medicine, entrepreneurship, education, public service or related fields that merit special recognition.

A Proud Tradition of Awards and Scholarships.

Springfield values excellence in its students and demonstrates this each year in the awarding of awards and scholarships during the Honors Reception and Commencement totaling almost $65,000. These awards and scholarships are made possible through the caring generosity of families that have been touched by the Springfield Schools in some way.

SAEF is committed to sustaining this proud tradition in perpetuity by strengthening the district's overall endowment. SAEF can only do so through the support of its board and by the generous donations of individuals and families who wish to "give back" to the district or honor the memory of a departed loved one.

If you or your family has an interest in supporting existing scholarships and awards, or establishing a new scholarship or award please fill out the Scholarship Request Form linked below.
