In 1987, the SPY’s began awarding scholarships to deserving high school seniors. To date, over $250,000 has been given in scholarships and recognition awards. Scholarship application packets are available at the Lakewood High School for local seniors beginning in March.
In 2019, the SPY’s awarded $16,500 to nine local graduating seniors. No organization in the Lakewood community has awarded more money or been giving longer that the Sunfield Area SPY’s!
New for 2020: The Sunfield SPY's are excited to announce the addition of a Trade's Scholarship. This will be an additional scholarship that will be awarded to an eligible graduating senior that wishes to enter a trade. Check out the Scholarship Application/Trades Scholarship Application for more information and eligibility criteria!
