Sambar Scholarship Endowment
Chakib “Chuck” Sambar, former President of the Glendale Unified School District (GUSD) Board of Education and educator, had long felt that there were many students capable of continuing their education beyond high school, but were held back due to financial constraints. His wife, Lois Neil-Sambar, was also a teacher in the GUSD and a principal at Rosemont Middle School. Together, they administered the Glendale Scholarship Endowment, now known as the Sambar Scholarship Endowment, which provides scholarships to local public or private high school graduates pursuing a higher education.
Financial need is a primary determining factor for this scholarship. A FAFSA/SAR report is required to be considered for this scholarship.
