The sales from our Surprising Findings resale store support annual scholarship awards for Saint_John's employee students. SurprisingFindings, our online Etsy shop, is another source of revenue for this worthy cause.
Employee Scholarship Award Program
Since 1984, Saint John’s has offered financial support to student employees for their personal education costs. Our Scholarship Award Program provides qualified staff help in advancing their career path. In August 2021, eight employees shared a pool of $18,000! The funds were raised from revenue of our on-site resale store as well as earnings from the Scholarship Endowment Fund. Each award directly helped to offset the cost of tuition, books, laptops and/or living expenses as these individuals strive to balance academics, work and their personal lives.
As of August 2021, 176 Scholarships totaling $250,000 have been awarded over 37 years by our Scholarship Committee to student employees meeting established criteria.
Your gifts to the Scholarship Endowment Fund make a profound difference in their ability to reach for their dreams, and we thank you with all our hearts.
