It is that time of year again to apply for the Sarah Ross Science and Math Scholarship. Sarah Ross, a cherished and dedicated educator in the Pomona Unified School District, touched the lives of her students with love, and had the belief that every child can succeed. Sarah was an inspiration to her students, and was the founding member of the Learning Expo and Science Fair. This scholarship is lovingly given in her name.
This scholarship is available to Pomona Unified students only. Scholarships range from $250-$1000 and will be awarded to winning essays submitted by Pomona Unified high school graduating seniors.
