South Dearborn Dollars for Scholars Squire Challenge
The SD Squire Challenge is an incentive program
meant to encourage South Dearborn Middle School, St. Johns & St. Lawrence students to start thinking about college.
(only for students who will be attending South Dearborn High School)


The Squire Challenge is a non-competitive scholarship
                            - all students who meet the criteria have an equal change of receiving an award
7th & 8th grade students will be introduced to a set of criteria that they must meet
in order to be eligible for the scholarship.
     The students must then continue to meet certain criteria
all four (4) years of high school in order to receive the actual monetary scholarship.
This "continuing criteria" will also help students be eligible
for other local, regional and national scholarships.
The deadline for SDMS, St John's & St. Lawrence 8th graders to apply for the
2024 SD Squire Challenge Scholarship
is April 16, 2024
