In 1987, the Sunfield Area Sponsors of Programs for Youth (SPY’s) began awarding scholarships to deserving high school seniors. To date, almost $300,000 has been given in scholarships and recognition awards. Scholarship application packets are available online at www.sunfieldareaspys.com.
In 2020: The Sunfield SPY's announced the addition of a separate Trade's Scholarship program. This is an additional scholarship that will be awarded to an eligible graduating senior that wishes to enter a trade.

We also award the Lade Military Service Honorarium for students entering the military, as well as the Richard Lenon Award that is based solely on Community Service.
