Each year, in partnership with the Margaret Sanders Foundation, AISA is pleased to offer the opportunity for schools from within the AISA network to nominate outstanding students for Margaret Sanders International Scholarship and Margaret Sanders AISA Scholarship for Girls.
Born in 1910, Margaret Sanders was a pioneer for her time, holding roles as varied as advertising designer, writer, air traffic controller, photographer and international yearbook representative. Her career with Walsworth Publishing Company began in 1961 and during the subsequent four decades, she travelled the world assisting schools with the publication of their yearbooks. This exciting career afforded her the opportunity to develop a close identification with overseas “American/ International” schools and their diverse and interesting populations.
Margaret passed away in June 2009, leaving a legacy of giving through her scholarship fund in perpetuity.
Past scholarship winners have come from international schools in Abu Dhabi, Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Colombia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Hungary, Israel, Japan, Kenya, Lebanon, Mexico, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sultanate of Oman, United Kingdom, Uzbekistan, Viet Nam, and Zimbabwe.
